OpsMgr: Choose source table based on date range

Written by Ingmar Verheij on April 10th, 2012. Posted in Operations Manager

When creating a report in System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) showing performance data you’ll need to make a decision about the data you’re going to show. Will you use raw data (Perf.vPerfRaw), hourly aggregated data (Perf.vPerfHourly) or daily aggregated data (Perf.vPerfDaily).

Do you want to show detailed information or for a longer period? The most detail can be achieved with the data stored in Perf.vPerfRaw but this comes at a cost, the time to query the database and render the report increases massive. So if you want to show data for a longer period (like over a week) you’ll probably better use the data stored in Perf.vPerfDaily.

 

But what if you want the user the ability to change the date range? If the user specifies a small range (for instance a day) you want high detail, but when the range is increased (for instance a month) less detail is required.

Unfortunately the reports created in the Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) does not allow you to create a conditional SQL statement. So in order to achieve this, a stored procedure needs to be created.

OpsMgr: Where’s my management pack?

Written by Ingmar Verheij on April 10th, 2012. Posted in Operations Manager

After importing a management pack in System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) it might take a while until it is visible in the Operations Console. When developing a management pack (and especially when creating reports) this is frustrating since there are numerous reasons why the management pack isn’t working as expected.

A common reason why the management pack (and the associated reports) aren’t showed in the Operations Console is because the management packs are queued awaiting synchronization.
