sysconf ctc measurement enable

Enables measurement over active network interfaces, including bond interfaces, that have CTC running as a service. This command starts the activity of taking bandwidth usage measurements for all clients, at a measurement rate defined by -interval, and storing those measurement records in memory.

If the sysconf ctc measurement enable command was run first, then sysconf ctc measurement show presents actual metrics, otherwise the show command displays only the 'disabled' status of the measurement feature.

For CTC measurement,

>the -interval value (set by sysconf ctc measurement enable) defines the time span between measurements of bandwidth usage; that is, how often a measurement is taken

>The -duration value (set by sysconf ctc measurement show) defines how far back in time, from the present moment, measurement results should be captured and displayed. If the -duration value exceeds the length of time that measurement has been active, then just the available measurements are used.

>The content of the records depends on how many interfaces are active, and how many clients are accessing the interfaces.

NOTE   The archive of CTC measurement records is maintained in memory and is rotated when more space is needed. Do not count on older records being available, as they could have been rotated out. If a restart is performed, the records are wiped entirely.
