Sample DW Queries dashboard


Add context to your dashboards from SQL data sources | SquaredUp speaks of a sample DW dashboard (Teams > Monitoring > Sample DW SQL Queries ) . Is it only available in 4.8 ? I don’t see it in my 5.1 install.
If so, does anybody have the source of the CPU trend query ?


Hello Nick, it looks like the dashboard name in the article is incorrect. The dashboard name is DW Analytics (first in the list under Teams > Monitoring. Do you see it?

Yes, that is it. Saves me a lot of typing from the screenshots :slight_smile:

Pro-tip (one I use often)!

OneNote has a “Copy text from picture” option. Simply paste an image into a OneNote and then right-click> copy text.

Glad you have the dashboard you need though! Highly recommend checking out the Analytics perspective on Alerts and also the Alert History perspective on objects - Both of these have SQL queries into the DW.

And of course, the fountain of all knowledge, Kevin Holman:

Hi @vinbab,

My production instance doesn’t have this dashboard but my test instance did. Unfortunately I don’t see the CPU trend Query in there.
Care to share the SQL Query? Just looking at the screenshots, I can see that there are parts missing… (I’m handy with SQL, just not THAT good)…


Here you go:

DECLARE @StartDate datetime
