Configure, Edit and Delete Frequency Profiles

Frequency profiles are configured and managed in the Paragon Insights GUI. In the GUI, they are managed by navigating to the Configuration > Sensor > Settings page and selecting the Frequency Profile tab from the left side of the page.


While the sections of the frequency profile are both optional, at least one section must be filled out per frequency profile if you want the applied profile to be able to do anything.

To configure a frequency profile:

  1. Click the + FREQUENCY PROFILE button

    The Add Frequency Profile window appears.

  2. Give the profile a name such as Profile1

    If you configured rules with sensors, follow steps 3 through 5. If you configured rules without sensors, follow steps 6 through 8.

  3. Click the + ADD SENSORS button.
  4. In the Sensor Name field, enter the sensor name as per the following guidelines:
    • OpenConfig Sensors: Enter the OpenConfig path for the desired sensor, such as /components or /interfaces.

    • iAgent Sensors: Enter the table name used in the sensor definition, such as ChassisAlarmTable or REutilizationTable

    • SNMP: Enter the sensor name such as npr_qmon_ext

    • BYOI: Enter <topic-name/rule-name/sensor-name>, such as topic1/rule1/sensor1

  5. In the Frequency field, enter the appropriate frequency, such as 30seconds, 1minute, 2hours, and so on.
  6. (Optional) Click the + ADD NON-SENSORS button.
  7. In the Rule Name field, enter the rule name such as check-chassis-alarms.
  8. In the Frequency field, enter the appropriate frequency, such as 45seconds, 3minutes, 1hour, and so on.

    Repeat steps 3 through 5 or 6 through 8 as desired for the profile.

    An example result of the previous steps might look like:

  9. Click the SAVE & DEPLOY button to save and deploy the profile.

    The new sensor profile is added to the list.

To edit a frequency profile:

  1. Click the <Profile Name> from the list.

  2. Make the needed changes as shown in the previous section.

  3. Click the SAVE button to save the profile for later deployment or the SAVE & DEPLOY button to save and deploy immediately.

To delete an existing frequency profile:

  1. Click the trash can icon to the right of the profile name.

  2. Click the DELETE button to delete the profile but not deploy the change or the DELETE & DEPLOY button to delete and deploy immediately.

Usage Notes:

  • Profile Entries–Multiple entries can be configured in each section as shown in Figure 1.

  • Override–Sensor or rule frequency defined within an applied frequency profile overrides those defined within the individual rule or sensor.

  • Order of Precedence–If a sensor or rule is defined in multiple frequency profiles, each with different frequency settings, the minimum frequency value for the sensor or rule is used.
