Present computer uptime in squaredup (eg. format values in performance)


I have come across this before in Squaredup and wonder if anyone has a good solution for it.

When I use the performance tile the results often gets presented in a format that is not usable. For example if I present system uptime it ends up as 115k or 1.1M that does not look good on a dashoard or says much about how long the computer has been up.

The same problem is present for other counters. A solution would be to be able to reformat the values. Is that possible?

SCOM doesn’t really understand what values are, only that they have a decimal place ( and I don’t believe there’s a way to change the values, unfortunately.


For uptime though, you can create a SQL query, it’s not my strong point though ?

I did a data on demand perspective and pulled last reboot into it. I have several things going on for that view. top 10 CPU, memory, last reboot and currently logged in users.
