APM Template Variables?

kylebrandt

Is there a notion of template variables?

For example, lets say I have an APM template with 10 PerfMon Monitors. All these perfmon monitors will track a particular instance throughout the template. However, I want to montor say 10 of these instances. This means without something like this I would have to manually enter the instance into 100 different components, instead of manually entering it 10 times.

Is there something like this, or is there a better approach?

    There currently is no concept of template variables in APM as you describe. We are looking to make improvements to application template editing in APM in the future and will consider the use of variables as a potential solution to ease this process.

    This is exactly what I would like to do with the SQL Server 2005-2008 Performance (WMI) template so I can apply the template when used with a named SQL instance to multiple nodes but not have to edit all the components individually to add the specific instance name. Am I missing something or is it not possible?
