  • Hi There,

    <<<Anyone have an example of the “Retrieve Performance Data” API call?>>>

    I dont know SCOM 1801 have this REST API built in feature to retrieve performance data. Even REST API is using for dashboards. And SCOM is using WMI quires to collect performance data and if you want to collect this perf data with REST API then you need to you a custom script which has been already provided by Taha.

  • Did you manage to find out how to do it?

    Anyhow, I got it to work using this in powershell:

    You need the guid of the computer that you want to query.

    # Authentication
    $scomHeaders = New-Object "System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary[[String],[String]]"
    $scomHeaders.Add(‘Content-Type’,’application/json; charset=utf-8')

    $bodyraw = “Windows”
    $Bytes = [System.Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetBytes($bodyraw)
    $EncodedText =[Convert]::ToBase64String($Bytes)
    $jsonbody = $EncodedText | ConvertTo-Json

    $uriBase = 'http://xxxxxx/OperationsManager/authenticate'
    $auth = Invoke-RestMethod -Method POST -Uri $uriBase -Headers $scomheaders -body $jsonbody -UseDefaultCredentials -SessionVariable websession

    # Duration in minutes

    $Query = @"
      "duration": "60",
      "id": "<--- Guid goes here --->",
        "objectname":  "Health Service",
        "countername":  "Active File Uploads",
        "instancename":  "",
        "objectname":  "Processor Information",
        "countername":  "% Processor Time",
        "instancename":  "_Total"


    $Response = Invoke-WebRequest http://xxxxxx/OperationsManager/data/performance -Method Post -Body $query -WebSession $websession
