Increasing default collector run of 7 days to 30 days?

    While totally possible, this would border on Live Optics being more of a monitoring software vs. a point in time capture. Since there are many software bundles in the market that play in that space, we have currently limited to our scope that is currently in place. 

    In the project scoping space, statistically speaking, 30 days will have no greater impact on understanding requirements over 7 days. In fact, after millions of servers run, we can see that in aggregate multiple servers in 24 hours is very accurate. The more servers in a collection and the longer it runs, the days recorded will look more the same. Workloads are pretty patternistic. The end of the month 'phenomenon' from our research is essentially unfounded when you look at servers en masse.
