Setup Dashboard: Uptime, CPU, Memory, Disk Space, etc RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    I am trying to setup monitors which will display the following:

    -Server Health (Already setup and working)

    -Server UptimeCPU Utilization

    -Memory Utilization

    -Free Disk Space

    -Network Utilization

    I have been looking through howtos and forums but can't find anything decent to assist me with this. For instance, when I try to setup a CPU utilization dashboard, most of the howtos mention a processor object type which needs to be selected but this is missing from the performance widget. I have installed the SC Management Pack for Windows Server Operating System management pack and under my monitors I do see the kind of monitors I want but can't get them to show on a dashboard. 

    I would really appreciate some tips or useful links.

  • Create a dashbaord, when you go to add the widget:

    Add in: the objects by performance widget, select All Windows Computers, Select Processor Information, % Processor time, _Total.   Display the TOP 10 objects.   This will float servers using the most CPU to the top of a list.

    Repeat for Drive Space, and Memory Space.

    let me know if that works for you, again it's the Processor Information not Processor for the perf counter object type.

  • Hi Vincez / Jesse,

    None of your suggestions worked.

    The problem is that I do not have the "Processor Information" as a perf counter. These objects are my only options under the performance widget:

    -Health Service

    -Health Service Management Groups

    -OpsMgr DB Write Action Modules

    -OpsMgr DW Writer Module

    -OpsMgr SDK Service



    I have also noticed the following errors in my event log:

    Not sure if any of the errors have something to do with the missing perf counters.

    Thank you for the assistance with this.

  • If this server wasn't named testscom, I would start over.

    Here is how to import MPs which will make those Perf Conuters show up in the dashboard view.


    5.  Import management packs. Also refer to: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh212691.aspx

    • Using the console – you can import MP’s using the catalog, or directly importing from disk.  Note – some MP’s should only be imported from disk.
    • Import the Base OS and SQL MP’s at a minimum.

  • Hi Jesse,

    I have already installed the base OS MPs. I have also confirmed that it has been imported.

    Do you think my installation is corrupted? If so I won't have any other choice but to reinstall.

  • Reinstalling resolved the issue.
