database query to get node information under monitored

hi there:

We have over 100 nodes under monitoring and info has been stored in the backend DB of SAM.  Does anyone have tried pull those info using customized sql query?

The info I am currently interested is Disk space, CPU&MEM utilization.

Is that info in the database?  Yes

Can it be retrieved?  Yes

How are you trying to view it?

If you are looking for trouble/issues, you can customize your page and add "Top XX" widgets for all of that info. Or you can use canned/custom alerts to notify you of issues.  Or schedule reports that include that information as hpstech​ mentions.

Your question cannot be more accurately answered without knowing what you are trying to accomplish with your quesiton above.

Hes asking for a report that has been asked in many threads.

A report that shows trends of CPU/DISK/MEM for a group of servers.

It has not been pulled together in a clean way since disks are difficult to list at the server level along with CPU/MEM.

There is no report available that does this in a clean way for a big group of servers.

The dream utilization report for Linux and Windows servers alludes us...still.

Another flavor of this report that works better for large sets of servers is this one

I really like this one.  Awesome work.  I have built a lot of custom views broken down to specific application/site/ERP.  This looks quite handy for those.

I will just throw this out there, I have posted the foundations of such a report using SWQL and/or SQL in several threads but I think that uptake has been marginal so I haven't spent further time on it.  This morning I fleshed it out a bit further but I have been very busy and haven't been able to allocate more than 20-30 minutes at a time to it (usually while I wait for a config wizard somewhere).  Anyway this is the current iteration of it, I have a template laid out for the next phase of it that will union in the cpu/memory/capacity forecasts/etc but you know, only so many hours in the day to spend on Thwack ideas.

Thanks hpstech. I checked the first one you mentioned.  CAST(ROUND(d.FreeSpaceB * 0.000000001, 2) AS DECIMAL(10,2)) AS 'FreeSpace'

is d.FreeSpaceB in bit or byte mode ?

A few home grown reports come close, but most do not combine CPU/MEM/DISK trend utilization for all three target objects.

thanks hpstech. For those xml report, how can I run it against the DB ? I know SQL very well but no XML.

You have to go to Manage Reports page and import the XML file, it will then show up as a published report that you can make copies of and further customize.

well, those data must be stored somewhere in the DB. That's how the UI picks up and have it displayed . Since there are so many nodes, click each one is tedious and not realistic. The best way might be simply retrieving from the back. cheers
