This document covers how to enable and configure the System Performance Report for Monitor Solution for the Symantec Management Platform. This document specifically covers how to configure this report for Windows Servers, however it can be used for Red Hat, SUSE, Solaris, and AIX server platforms. The report gives you graphical server data regarding user data, network bandwidth usage, and open files.
To get this report up and running for Windows Server Operating Systems there are 3 particular metrics that need to be applied. Please keep in mind this
report will not work on non-server versions of the operating systems. The 3 metrics that need be applied are the following:
These can be used in either standard metric form or the metric collect versions may be used to populate the report. If you choose to use the metric version then the policies and rules
will need to be configured. If you choose to use the metric collect version then all that will need to be done is adding those rules to a new policy which will be covered in this document.
The main difference between a metric and a metric collect is that standard metrics are more "real time" than the metric collects. Metric collects take anywhere from 15 minutes to hours to upload
data to the SQL server where standard metrics are almost instantaneous. Also in this instance it should be noted that none of the metric collects will be shown in the event console. To be clear metric
collects do not generate alerts for these particular metrics. They are for report/historical performance only.
