This is just a short post to point everybody to the new SQL MP 18.104.22.168 released last week. This MP comes with completely new and revamped dashboards:
Overview (Datacenter) Dashboard
You can create overview dashboards for SCOM groups and include State and Alert data for the group as well as aggregated performance and monitoring data:
Individual (Instance) Dashboards
The datacenter dashboards allows you to drill into your data and create additional tiles with monitoring and performance data:
And the best thing is:
You can use these dashboards for all other (custom) SCOM classes, counters and monitors!
So you are not limited to SQL data. This is just a quick demo dashboard for one of my test Management Groups:
You can find all necessary details and steps to set these dashboards up and running in the attached SQLServerDashboards.docx document which is also included in the new SQL MP.
