Database Performer Analyzer - setting Resource values with API's

I would like to set a Custom Alarm Threshold value for SQL Disk Read Latency and SQL Disk Write Latency under Disk Resources
e.g.

Easy enough to do with a single database 🙂
The issue is I have several hundred databases to set. (This would be very time consuming)
Can this be done using the API?

At this time, you cannot use the API for this task. Your best option would be to contact support and ask for help in writing a custom script to update the DPA repository directly. HTH

I suggest you also put in a Feature Request to have the functionality added to DPA.

If enough people vote on it, it may, eventually, possibly even in your lifetime 😉, be added to the product.

Last I saw the DPA api only really supports a narrow set of commands, mostly relating to admin stuff like adding new instances and deleting old ones. Traditionally I have seen people just going directly to the database of dpa to do bulk work. Considering that many DPA user are DBA's and that is their natural playground.
