SCOM 2007 R2 MSMQ alert duplication question

    Question

  • Good afternoon everyone!

    I have a quick question.  We have the MSMQ pack and it is doing a wonderful job.  There is an alert in the MGT pack called:

    JOURNAL PERCENTAGE

    It has a WARNING and CRITICAL threshold level built into the alert and works great as well.

    Now the business has asked to get another threshold (Informational).  So I told them I would have to create a custom alert.  I see the XML configuration from the alert in the mgt pack which gives me the counternames...etc...

    - <Configuration>
      <IntervalSeconds>300</IntervalSeconds>
      <ComputerName>$Target/Host/Host/Property[Type="Windows!Microsoft.Windows.Computer"]/PrincipalName$</ComputerName>
      <QueuePath>$Target/Property[Type="Microsoft.MSMQ.2008R2.Queue"]/PathName$</QueuePath>
      <CounterName>Journal Quota Pctg</CounterName>
      <LogDetail>false</LogDetail>
      <WarningThresholdValue>80</WarningThresholdValue>
      <ErrorThresholdValue>90</ErrorThresholdValue>
      <TimeoutSeconds>300</TimeoutSeconds>

     </Configuration>

    My question is this:

    If I wanted to create an extra alert...what kind of monitor do I select to set this up?  I looked around and I didn't see one that had ComputerName and QueuePath in them?  I am not sure what kind of counter that is.

    Thanks in advance!
