A fix is available against Telemetry service. This fix require a downtime. In case we stop the Telemetry service and put the below script in Linux startup so that if the system reboot the service will stop again. (Please note, I don't have VOM or VIOM in my environment). is it good to go to stop the Telemetry service at LINUX startup ?
# /opt/VRTSvlic/tele/bin/TelemetryCollector -tcstop
If you do not want the "Telemetry service" to start in next system restart, you can disable VCS from auto-restart (rename file OR diable the service group from AutoStart (when vcs restarts) OR remove the system names from the service group attribute AutoStartList (in main.cf).
Designates whether a service group is automatically started when VCS is started.
The command to start VCS is invoked from the following file:
Linux: /etc/rc3.d/S99vcs or /sbin/rc3.d/S99vcs.
do not forget to revert the changes back once have completed maintainance so vcs will start in next reboot
to "permanently disable Telemetry service", you can do one of the followings:
1. disable the "Telemetry service" resource is VCS by using gui (VOM) or run the command "heres -disable "Telemetry service"_resource_name (refer to hares command man page for command syntax). Remove any resource dependencies for "Telemetry service" resource.
2. disable the service group (which has the "Telemetry service" resource) AutoStart
3. edit main.cf to delete the "Telemetry service" resource then restart VCS
