The "Recommeded Sample Rate" settings are built into the Viewpoint infrastructure. The recommended sample rates as well as the initial retention rates are oulined in the User Guide or Viewpoint on-line help under Admin -> Teradata Systems -> Data Collectors -> Data Collector Sample Rates.

We provide flexibility for custom settings if a customer has a use case for more frequency in their data collection.
