A. The minimum amount of data points required to run simulations are:
Time Scale Amount of time the simulation runs on
1 minute 1440 data points 24-hour period
5 minutes 576 data points 48-hour period
1 hour 96 data points 96-hour period
1 day 4 points 96-hour period
B. The maximum number of points over which a simulation can be run is 5 million points.
For example: An alert that contains 5000 metrics, which leaves only 1000 data points per metric, will not run on a 1 minute time scale.
C. A single simulation can include a maximum of 20,000 metrics.
