Configuring the number of hours to ignore dynamic data

You can configure the number of hours during which OnCommand Insight ignores updating dynamic data, such as used capacity. If the default of six hours is used and no configuration changes occur, reports will not be updated with dynamic data until after the default number of hours. This option improves performance because this option defers updates when only the dynamic data changes.
