I can happily graph the individual perf counters for servers, but what if I want to get a graph of their cumulative values? i.e a Total Active Connections counter, across multiple servers?
I’ve seen some custom authoring where someone has created a Powershell probe which can take two counters from a single server and then do a Sum on them as a property bag output, but it’s not quite what I’m looking for.
I wasn’t sure where to share my work – I’ve got an old blog I started for SCOM/OMS and I haven’t used in ages. Decided to resurrect it and I might post some SquaredUp stuff on there that might be interesting for others.
I’ve done a post on how we are counting total connections on our RDS Collections. It’s a good starting point to combining other metrics. We are querying WMI, but I guess you could use Get-Counter or similar in it’s place.
Let me know if this is useful..upvote this post 🗳️🗳️🗳️ 🙂
I was looking for this to track Remote Desktop Connections on our farms. In the end I used the powershell MP to create a custom counter that did all the math for me and store the value, and I use that in SquaredUp. There was no way to do it in SquaredUp itself I found.
We also doing similar thing for our Sonus PBX gateways.
In squaredup v2 we had the option for a total in the sparkline view that could do this. Haven’t seen this in v3 but it would be verry good to have this back.
I have the same need. Would be nice to have a total aggregate value back instead of having to create a custom management pack to store the data.
