Total cpu utilization percentage diagnostic removed from Windows 2008 MP? RRS feed

  • Question

  • SCOM 2012 SP1 environment running the Windows Server 2008 Operating System Management Pack, version 6.0.7026.0


    We had a server that had high CPU utilization.  We were able to figure out what process was causing the high CPU using some remote commands, but I am used to seeing this in the health explorer state change events view.

    I looked into health explorer but there is no data.


    I then notice that in this MP, there are 2 CPU monitors


    The first monitor shown is disabled by default, but it is this monitor that contains the diagnostic to list the top CPU consuming processes


    The CPU monitor that is enabled by default has no diagnostic tasks associated to it


    While I have the ability to create my own diagnostic task, I would rather not, as it requires me to enter my own command or script.

    I liked the fact that the CPU monitor would list the top consuming processes, as this was useful troubleshooting information.

    Does anyone know why this diagnostic is not included in the new version of this monitor?  I cannot find any information in the release notes.

    Is there any reason I should think twice about disabling the default monitor, and setting an override to enable to “legacy” monitor that has the diagnostic task built in?
