Availability Report for Sharepoint 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • From the Sharepoint 2010 MP, there are a number of subsets under Monitoring/Sharepoint 2010 Products, e.g. Administration/Farms/Servers/Web Applications, to name a few.

    Many of these subsets allow an Availability Report to be run.

    Not being at all familiar with SharePoint, if I was asked to provide the "Availability of SharePoint over the last 30 days", which subset should I choose to run a report from?

    thx,

  • Go with the farm if you have farms.  Otherwise go with the individual servers if you are just using the "nearly free" version (e.g. MOSS).

  • Thx Ganesh.

    There are sooooo many different options to chose from at Step 8. I chose the Farm Group and that seemed to return data (as suggested above by Dan). I do not understand what the rest of the available options mean.

     

    Also, the Condition selected by Default is "Down Time - Unplanned Maintenance" which is a combination I do not understand. What should be chosen there?

    Thx again,

  • Yes that would be fine for reporting perceptive but if you want to get actual Availability Report for SharePoint component then it is depend on your requirement what report you want  say like,

    1>     SharePoint Central Administrator Website availability.

    2>     SharePoint Client Access site Availability

    3>     IIS 2003 Application Pool   Availability

    4>     IIS 7 Application pool Availability

    5>     SQL server Database for SharePoint Availability and much more.

    In this you will get detailed report about individual component as mention above …

     

    And for your secant point condition which you need to select, following are the available condition in SCOM reporting

    1>     Worming

    2>     Monitoring Unavailability

    3>     Planned maintenance  

    4>     Unplanned maintenance  

    5>     Monitor Disabled

    6>     Unmonitored

    So select according to your requirement I can suggest you to select all the condition which will give you clear idea about your MOSS environment Availability,

    i have tested the above in my network and it is working fine for me....

    Let me know about your though on this...

  • Thx Ganesh. That was very helpful.

     

    I have two sets of SharePoint servers run by two completely different groups of people.

    How do I set up reporting to separate out the different websites etc for the different groups? Is it just based per server?

    Also, is there a blog anywhere showing how to do all this for Sharepoint that you are aware of?

    Thankyou again,
