Windows Server 2012 R2
SCOM 2012 using Audit Collection Services
SQL Server 2012 for the OpsMngr Database Collector
All on the same 64bit box with two processors @ 2.7Ghz and 16GB RAM
I have just set up ACS for the first time and learning about it.
Right now I have three servers with the Audit Collection Forwarding Service Agent installed on each of them. So they all are forwarding security audits to my Collector SQL DB.
My problem is that with only three forwarders sending events to my collector I am still seeing the "DB Backoff Threshold" and "Disconnect Threshold" maxed out. Which is causing one of my three forwarding agents to be dropped every now and again.
If you observe the screen shots I have attached you will notice that this is very odd problem to have with only three forwarding agents. Especially with such low events per second. The most traffic there has been was about 500 events according to the report shown in screenshot (Hourly_Event_Report)
So why am I having this issue when the DB_Queue (screenshot shown) is flat zero! There should be no reason for my thresholds to be maxing out and staying maxed out especially.
