The SYMON Monitoring Plugin for VMAX consists of data collectors and various checks for different components of the EMC VMAX system. The collectors of the SYMON Monitoring Plugin for VMAX define the checking interval. If you want to check certain components every 15 minutes, you have to set the checking interval of the collectors to 15 minutes. The checking interval has to be the same for all components, meaning it must be set at the interval of the component with the shortest desired checking interval.
