About the Frequency Profiles

Frequency profiles are a central location in which sensor and rule time frequencies can be managed. To understand frequency profiles, consider the following.

When defining rules in Paragon Insights you can:

  • Define multiple rules that use the same sensor

  • Define different sensor frequencies for each of the rules

  • Apply all of these rules to the same device group/devices

This creates complexity in rule application and frequency adjustments within the individual rules:

  • A key, consisting of sensor-path for OpenConfig and Native GPB sensors, or the tuple of file and table for iAgent sensors is used to identify the specific rules.

  • Paragon Insights takes the minimum defined frequency for that sensor from the applied rules and uses it to subscribe to, or fetch, data from the devices.

  • This make it hard to identify what the data rate should be for that sensor. To do that, you would have to go through the all the applied rules.

  • A change in the sensor frequency of an applied rule might not take effect as intended.

To address these complexities, Paragon Insights needed a common place from which to control these frequencies. Frequency profiles can be created that allow you to manage sensor and rule frequencies from a single location and then apply the profiles in various locations in Paragon Insights. Application of these profiles allows for persistent and repeatable behavior in regard to frequencies for rules, sensors, triggers, formulas, references, learning periods, and hold times.

A sensor profile consists of a profile name and two optional sections: the sensors section and the non-sensors section. In each section, an entry consists of a sensor or rule name and a frequency. Frequency profiles are applied to device groups or network groups.
