Management Group Performance Evaluation and Tuning Reports

I created a small management pack a couple years ago to help identify performance bottlenecks in an Operations Manager 2007 R2 environment.  It started with a couple collection rules targeting the core SCOM server roles.  I would then query the database and paste results into an Excel spreadsheet.  Evaluating all the data and formatting the spreadsheet was a big undertaking, but provided insightful information into the overall management group performance.


Since then I included a performance report that evaluates many of the counters during runtime, and clearly indicates potential bottlenecks by marking up the report automatically with green and red boxes.  This change dramatically reduced the time it took to get a real-time snapshot of management group performance.  There is also an date range offset parameter on the report, so it could be emailed to the SCOM administrator on a regular schedule.


Tuning is another aspect of Operations Manager that needs attention in order to maintain a healthy and well performing environment.  It is also imperative in delivering the best experience with your monitoring tool (including the Operations Console, notification workflows and connecting to other ticketing systems).  So, I thought a general tuning report would be a nice addition.

Always carefully inspect and test all community management packs before implementing in a production environment.  Please read the guide before installing.

  • Hi, I have downloaded the zip file today, but I have problems unzipping the XML. Can you check the zip file please?

  • I'm not having any troubles downloading and unzipping.

  • Im getting a CRC error on the Zip as well

  • Downloaded file through IE9 on Windows 7 x86.  File is "Sample Tuning Reports (6.0.7221.46).zip" and shows as 126 KB in size.  When I try to unzip it with native extract or 7zip I get 0 KB files and an error.  "Unsupported compression method for 'Sample Tuning Reports (6.0.7221.46)\(file name)" for both the docx and xml files.

  • Seems there are at least a few people having problems extracting the files.  I uploaded a new zip.  If it's still not working for you, I will figure something else out.


  • The current package downloaded and extracted successfully
