Hi all, I’ve been tasked with creating a weekly report for management reporting on general server uptime for a group of production servers. I’ve accomplished this using the MS Generic Report Library>Availability report in SCOM 2012 in combination with a group of health watcher objects (this shows true uptime as opposed to targeting a group of computer objects which will report any critical state as downtime), so i now have individual server uptime percent for any given health watcher object. See the image for an example of existing report. What i need now is an average of the uptime over a period for all servers (health watcher objects) of the same group. Does anyone know of a report or option within SCOM or squared up that would generate such a report or dashboard? Thanks in advance!
You could try creating a group of health service watchers and add a health rollup to that group. For more information on that you could check https://tickets.squaredup.com/support/solutions/articles/200804-what-to-do-if-a-group-shows-no-health-information-how-to-create-a-health-rollup-monitor
Then create a standard availability report, but instead of adding a group, you add that group as an object.
Hopefully that makes sense.
It’s not an exact answer to your question, so I’m posting this as a comment, but I think you might find the following recent blog post sparks a few ideas of some of the things you can achieve in Squared Up in this area -https://squaredup.com/blog/building-amazing-sla-availability-dashboards/ - hope that helps
Thanks Jaspervd. The only problem i see with that is isn’t it accurate that the rollup will report on the healthiest or least healthy (depending on how you set it) object so i would basically get all red or all green right? I very well could be wrong but that’s at least how i’m seeing it. What i need is an actual average percent of uptime for all of the health watcher objects in the group : /
Thanks crowd, this isn’t exactly what i’m needing but does look super useful! i could definitely apply this in some other areas
Excellent thanks! This one is good too, though i’m looking for something to target the average uptime for a group of servers as opposed to a distributed app. The first link looks like it will do the job actually, i just don’y think i’m configuring the SLO in SCOM correctly because i’m getting 100% on the group object even though not all of the server objects are 100%… I’m targeting the Health Watcher class for the group, any idea how exactly they configured the General/Uptime SLO in the example?
