Large Table query.  (I am putting this at the top, because I use it so much – to find out what is taking up so much space in the OpsDB or DW)

SELECT TOP 1000
a2.name AS [tablename], (a1.reserved + ISNULL(a4.reserved,0))* 8 AS reserved,
a1.rows as row_count, a1.data * 8 AS data,
(CASE WHEN (a1.used + ISNULL(a4.used,0)) > a1.data THEN (a1.used + ISNULL(a4.used,0)) - a1.data ELSE 0 END) * 8 AS index_size,
(CASE WHEN (a1.reserved + ISNULL(a4.reserved,0)) > a1.used THEN (a1.reserved + ISNULL(a4.reserved,0)) - a1.used ELSE 0 END) * 8 AS unused,
(row_number() over(order by (a1.reserved + ISNULL(a4.reserved,0)) desc))%2 as l1,
a3.name AS [schemaname]
FROM (SELECT ps.object_id, SUM (CASE WHEN (ps.index_id < 2) THEN row_count ELSE 0 END) AS [rows],
SUM (ps.reserved_page_count) AS reserved,
SUM (CASE WHEN (ps.index_id < 2) THEN (ps.in_row_data_page_count + ps.lob_used_page_count + ps.row_overflow_used_page_count)
ELSE (ps.lob_used_page_count + ps.row_overflow_used_page_count) END ) AS data,
SUM (ps.used_page_count) AS used
FROM sys.dm_db_partition_stats ps
GROUP BY ps.object_id) AS a1
LEFT OUTER JOIN (SELECT it.parent_id,
SUM(ps.reserved_page_count) AS reserved,
SUM(ps.used_page_count) AS used
FROM sys.dm_db_partition_stats ps
INNER JOIN sys.internal_tables it ON (it.object_id = ps.object_id)
WHERE it.internal_type IN (202,204)
GROUP BY it.parent_id) AS a4 ON (a4.parent_id = a1.object_id)
INNER JOIN sys.all_objects a2  ON ( a1.object_id = a2.object_id )
INNER JOIN sys.schemas a3 ON (a2.schema_id = a3.schema_id)
WHERE a2.type <> N'S' and a2.type <> N'IT'  

 

Database Size and used space.  (People have a lot of confusion here – this will show the DB and log file size, plus the used/free space in each)

USE OperationsManager
select a.FILEID,
[FILE_SIZE_MB]=convert(decimal(12,2),round(a.size/128.000,2)),
[SPACE_USED_MB]=convert(decimal(12,2),round(fileproperty(a.name,'SpaceUsed')/128.000,2)),
[FREE_SPACE_MB]=convert(decimal(12,2),round((a.size-fileproperty(a.name,'SpaceUsed'))/128.000,2)) ,

Operational Database Section: 

 

Alerts Section:

Number of console Alerts per Day:

SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), TimeAdded, 102) AS DayAdded, COUNT(*) AS NumAlertsPerDay
FROM Alert WITH (NOLOCK)
WHERE TimeRaised is not NULL
GROUP BY CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), TimeAdded, 102)
ORDER BY DayAdded DESC

Top 20 Alerts in an Operational Database, by Alert Count

SELECT TOP 20 SUM(1) AS AlertCount, AlertStringName, AlertStringDescription, MonitoringRuleId, Name
FROM Alertview WITH (NOLOCK)
WHERE TimeRaised is not NULL
GROUP BY AlertStringName, AlertStringDescription, MonitoringRuleId, Name
ORDER BY AlertCount DESC

Top 20 Alerts in an Operational Database, by Repeat Count

SELECT TOP 20 SUM(RepeatCount+1) AS RepeatCount, AlertStringName, AlertStringDescription, MonitoringRuleId, Name
FROM Alertview WITH (NOLOCK)
WHERE Timeraised is not NULL
GROUP BY AlertStringName, AlertStringDescription, MonitoringRuleId, Name
ORDER BY RepeatCount DESC

Number of console Alerts per Day by Resolution State:

SELECT
CASE WHEN(GROUPING(CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), TimeAdded, 102)) = 1) THEN 'All Days' ELSE CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), TimeAdded, 102) END AS [Date],
CASE WHEN(GROUPING(ResolutionState) = 1) THEN 'All Resolution States' ELSE CAST(ResolutionState AS VARCHAR(5)) END AS [ResolutionState],
COUNT(*) AS NumAlerts
FROM Alert WITH (NOLOCK)
WHERE TimeRaised is not NULL
GROUP BY CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), TimeAdded, 102), ResolutionState WITH ROLLUP
ORDER BY DATE DESC

 

(Note:  There will be more alerts in the "Alert" table in the form of rows, than exist in the console.  This is because there are non-console alerts where TimeRaised is NULL - these have to do with driving state change records, and are not included in the above queries by design)

 


Events Section:

All Events by count by day, with total for entire database:  (this tells us how many events per day we are inserting - and helps us look for too many events, event storms, and the result after tuning rules that generate too many events)

SELECT CASE WHEN(GROUPING(CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), TimeAdded, 102)) = 1)
THEN 'All Days'
ELSE CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), TimeAdded, 102) END AS DayAdded,
COUNT(*) AS EventsPerDay
FROM EventAllView
GROUP BY CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), TimeAdded, 102) WITH ROLLUP
ORDER BY DayAdded DESC

Most Common Events by event number:  (This helps us know which event ID's are the most common in the database)

SELECT top 20 Number as EventID, COUNT(*) AS TotalEvents
FROM EventView with (NOLOCK)
GROUP BY Number
ORDER BY TotalEvents DESC

Most common events by event number and event publishername: (This gives us the event source name to help see what is raising these events)

SELECT top 20 Number as EventID, COUNT(*) AS TotalEvents, Publishername as EventSource
FROM EventAllView eav with (nolock)
GROUP BY Number, Publishername
ORDER BY TotalEvents DESC

Most common events, grouped by identical event number, publishername, and event parameters: (This shows use completely redundant events with identical data - but might be different than the above queries... you need to see both data outputs to fully tune)

SELECT top 100 Number as EventID, COUNT(*) AS TotalEvents, Publishername as EventSource, EventParameters
FROM EventAllView with (NOLOCK)
GROUP BY Number, Publishername, EventParameters
ORDER BY TotalEvents DESC

Computers generating the most events: (This shows us which computers create the most event traffic and use the most database space)

SELECT top 20 LoggingComputer as ComputerName, COUNT(*) AS TotalEvents
FROM EventallView with (NOLOCK)
GROUP BY LoggingComputer
ORDER BY TotalEvents DESC

Computers generating the most events, by event number: (This shows the noisiest computers, group by unique event numbers)

SELECT top 20 LoggingComputer as ComputerName, COUNT(*) AS TotalEvents, Number as EventID
FROM EventallView with (NOLOCK)
GROUP BY LoggingComputer, Number
ORDER BY TotalEvents DESC

Computers generating the most events, grouped by identical event number and publishername: 

SELECT top 20 LoggingComputer as ComputerName, COUNT(*) AS TotalEvents, PublisherName as EventSource, Number as EventID
FROM EventallView with (NOLOCK)
GROUP BY LoggingComputer, PublisherName, Number
ORDER BY TotalEvents DESC

 

 

Performance Section: 

Performance insertions per day: 

SELECT CASE WHEN(GROUPING(CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), TimeSampled, 102)) = 1)
THEN 'All Days' ELSE CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), TimeSampled, 102)
END AS DaySampled, COUNT(*) AS PerfInsertPerDay
FROM PerformanceDataAllView with (NOLOCK)
GROUP BY CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), TimeSampled, 102) WITH ROLLUP
ORDER BY DaySampled DESC

Top 20 performance insertions by perf object and counter name: 

select top 20 pcv.ObjectName, pcv.CounterName, count (pcv.countername) as Total
from performancedataallview as pdv, performancecounterview as pcv
where (pdv.performancesourceinternalid = pcv.performancesourceinternalid)
group by pcv.objectname, pcv.countername
order by count (pcv.countername) desc

To view all performance insertions for a given computer:

select Path, ObjectName, CounterName, InstanceName, SampleValue, TimeSampled
from PerformanceDataAllView pdv with (NOLOCK)
inner join PerformanceCounterView pcv on pdv.performancesourceinternalid = pcv.performancesourceinternalid
inner join BaseManagedEntity bme on pcv.ManagedEntityId = bme.BaseManagedEntityId
where path = 'omterm.opsmgr.net'
order by countername, timesampled

To refine a the above query to pull all perf data for a given computer, object, counter, and instance:

select Path, ObjectName, CounterName, InstanceName, SampleValue, TimeSampled
from PerformanceDataAllView pdv with (NOLOCK)
inner join PerformanceCounterView pcv on pdv.performancesourceinternalid = pcv.performancesourceinternalid
inner join BaseManagedEntity bme on pcv.ManagedEntityId = bme.BaseManagedEntityId
where path = 'omterm.opsmgr.net' AND
objectname = 'LogicalDisk' AND
countername = 'Free Megabytes'
order by timesampled

 

 

State Section: 

To find out how old your StateChange data is:

declare @statedaystokeep INT
SELECT @statedaystokeep = DaysToKeep from PartitionAndGroomingSettings WHERE ObjectName = 'StateChangeEvent'
SELECT COUNT(*) as 'Total StateChanges',
count(CASE WHEN sce.TimeGenerated > dateadd(dd,-@statedaystokeep,getutcdate()) THEN sce.TimeGenerated ELSE NULL END) as 'within grooming retention',
count(CASE WHEN sce.TimeGenerated < dateadd(dd,-@statedaystokeep,getutcdate()) THEN sce.TimeGenerated ELSE NULL END) as '> grooming retention',
count(CASE WHEN sce.TimeGenerated < dateadd(dd,-30,getutcdate()) THEN sce.TimeGenerated ELSE NULL END) as '> 30 days',

THEN 'All Days' ELSE CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), TimeGenerated, 102)
END AS DayGenerated, COUNT(*) AS StateChangesPerDay
FROM StateChangeEvent WITH (NOLOCK)
GROUP BY CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), TimeGenerated, 102) WITH ROLLUP
ORDER BY DayGenerated DESC

Management Pack info:

Rules section:

To find a common rule name given a Rule ID name:

SELECT DisplayName from RuleView
where name = 'Microsoft.SystemCenter.GenericNTPerfMapperModule.FailedExecution.Alert'
-- change the 'name' value above to the Rule ID shown in an alert

Rules per MP:

SELECT mp.MPName, COUNT(*) As RulesPerMP
FROM Rules r
INNER JOIN ManagementPack mp ON mp.ManagementPackID = r.ManagementPackID
GROUP BY mp.MPName
ORDER BY RulesPerMP DESC

Rules per MP by category:

SELECT mp.MPName, r.RuleCategory, COUNT(*) As RulesPerMPPerCategory
FROM Rules r
INNER JOIN ManagementPack mp ON mp.ManagementPackID = r.ManagementPackID
GROUP BY mp.MPName, r.RuleCategory
ORDER BY RulesPerMPPerCategory DESC 

To find all Rules per MP that generate an alert: 

declare @mpid as varchar(50)
select @mpid= managementpackid from managementpack where
mpName='Microsoft.Exchange.2007'
select rl.rulename,rl.ruleid,md.modulename from rules rl, module md
where md.managementpackid = @mpid
and rl.ruleid=md.parentid
and moduleconfiguration like '%<AlertLevel>50</AlertLevel>%'

To find all rules per MP with a given alert severity:

declare @mpid as varchar(50)
select @mpid= managementpackid from managementpack where
mpName='Microsoft.Exchange.Server.2003.Monitoring'
select rl.rulename,rl.ruleid,md.modulename from rules rl, module md
where md.managementpackid = @mpid
and rl.ruleid=md.parentid
and moduleconfiguration like '%<Severity>2</Severity>%'

Rules are stored in a table named Rules. This table has columns linking rules to classes and Management Packs. To find all rules in a Management Pack use the following query and substitute in the required Management Pack name:

SELECT * FROM Rules WHERE ManagementPackID = (SELECT ManagementPackID from ManagementPack WHERE MPName = 'Microsoft.Windows.Server.2003') 

To find all rules targeted at a given class use the following query and substitute in the required class name:

SELECT * FROM Rules WHERE TargetManagedEntityType = (SELECT ManagedTypeId FROM ManagedType WHERE TypeName = 'Microsoft.Windows.Computer') 

 

Monitors Section:

Monitors Per MP:

SELECT mp.MPName, COUNT(*) As MonitorsPerMPPerCategory
FROM Monitor m
INNER JOIN ManagementPack mp ON mp.ManagementPackID = m.ManagementPackID
GROUP BY mp.MPName
ORDER BY COUNT(*) Desc

To find your Monitor by common name:

select * from Monitor m
Inner join LocalizedText LT on LT.ElementName = m.MonitorName
where LTValue = 'Monitor Common Name'

To find your Monitor by ID name:

select * from Monitor m
Inner join LocalizedText LT on LT.ElementName = m.MonitorName
where m.monitorname = 'Monitor ID name'

To find all monitors targeted at a specific class:

SELECT * FROM monitor WHERE TargetManagedEntityType = (SELECT ManagedTypeId FROM ManagedType WHERE TypeName = 'Microsoft.Windows.Computer')

 

Groups Section:

To find all groups for a given computer/object (change “computername” in the query below):

SELECT SourceMonitoringObjectDisplayName AS 'Group'
FROM RelationshipGenericView
WHERE TargetMonitoringObjectDisplayName like ('%computername%')
AND (SourceMonitoringObjectDisplayName IN
(SELECT ManagedEntityGenericView.DisplayName
FROM ManagedEntityGenericView INNER JOIN
(SELECT     BaseManagedEntityId
FROM          BaseManagedEntity WITH (NOLOCK)
WHERE      (BaseManagedEntityId = TopLevelHostEntityId) AND (BaseManagedEntityId NOT IN
(SELECT     R.TargetEntityId
FROM          Relationship AS R WITH (NOLOCK) INNER JOIN
dbo.fn_ContainmentRelationshipTypes() AS CRT ON R.RelationshipTypeId = CRT.RelationshipTypeId
WHERE      (R.IsDeleted = 0)))) AS GetTopLevelEntities ON
GetTopLevelEntities.BaseManagedEntityId = ManagedEntityGenericView.Id INNER JOIN
(SELECT DISTINCT BaseManagedEntityId
FROM          TypedManagedEntity WITH (NOLOCK)
WHERE      (ManagedTypeId IN
(SELECT     DerivedManagedTypeId
FROM dbo.fn_DerivedManagedTypes(dbo.fn_ManagedTypeId_Group()) AS fn_DerivedManagedTypes_1))) AS GetOnlyGroups ON
GetOnlyGroups.BaseManagedEntityId = ManagedEntityGenericView.Id))
ORDER BY 'Group'

To find all members of a given group (change the group name below):

select SourceMonitoringObjectDisplayName as 'Group Name',
TargetMonitoringObjectDisplayName as 'Group Members'
from RelationshipGenericView
where isDeleted=0
AND SourceMonitoringObjectDisplayName = 'Agent Managed Computer Group'
ORDER BY TargetMonitoringObjectDisplayName

Find find the entity data on all members of a given group (change the group name below):

SELECT bme.*
FROM BaseManagedEntity bme
INNER JOIN RelationshipGenericView rgv WITH(NOLOCK) ON bme.basemanagedentityid = rgv.TargetMonitoringObjectid
WHERE bme.IsDeleted = '0'
AND rgv.SourceMonitoringObjectDisplayName = 'Agent Managed Computer Group'
ORDER BY bme.displayname

 

 

Management Pack general:

To find all installed Management Packs and their version:

SELECT MPName, MPFriendlyName, MPVersion, MPIsSealed
FROM ManagementPack WITH(NOLOCK)
ORDER BY MPName

Number of Views per Management Pack:

SELECT mp.MPName, v.ViewVisible, COUNT(*) As ViewsPerMP
FROM [Views] v
            INNER JOIN ManagementPack mp ON mp.ManagementPackID = v.ManagementPackID
GROUP BY  mp.MPName, v.ViewVisible
ORDER BY v.ViewVisible DESC, COUNT(*) Desc

How to gather all the views in the database, their ID, MP location, and view type:

select vv.id as 'View Id',
vv.displayname as 'View DisplayName',
vv.name as 'View Name',
vtv.DisplayName as 'ViewType',
mpv.FriendlyName as 'MP Name'
from ViewsView vv
inner join managementpackview mpv on mpv.id = vv.managementpackid
inner join viewtypeview vtv on vtv.id = vv.monitoringviewtypeid
--where mpv.FriendlyName like '%default%'
--where vv.displayname like '%operating%'
order by mpv.FriendlyName, vv.displayname

Classes available in the DB:

SELECT * FROM ManagedType

Classes available in the DB for Microsoft Windows type:

SELECT * FROM ManagedType WHERE TypeName LIKE 'Microsoft.Windows.%'  

Every property of every class:

SELECT * FROM MT_Computer 

All instances of all types once discovered

SELECT * FROM BaseManagedEntity

To get the state of every instance of a particular monitor the following query can be run, (replace <MonitorName> with the name of the monitor):

SELECT bme.FullName, bme.DisplayName, s.HealthState FROM state AS s, BaseManagedEntity as bme WHERE s.basemanagedentityid = bme.basemanagedentityid AND s.monitorid IN (SELECT MonitorId FROM Monitor WHERE MonitorName = =<MonitorName>‘)

For example, this gets the state of the Microsoft.SQLServer.2005.DBEngine.ServiceMonitor for each instance of the SQL 2005 Database Engine class.

SELECT bme.FullName, bme.DisplayName, s.HealthState FROM state AS s, BaseManagedEntity as bme WHERE s.basemanagedentityid = bme.basemanagedentityid AND s.monitorid IN (SELECT MonitorId FROM Monitor WHERE MonitorName = 'Microsoft.SQLServer.2005.DBEngine.ServiceMonitor') 

To find the overall state of any object in OpsMgr the following query should be used to return the state of the System.EntityState monitor:

SELECT bme.FullName, bme.DisplayName, s.HealthState FROM state AS s, mt_managedcomputer AS mt, BaseManagedEntity as bme WHERE s.basemanagedentityid = bme.basemanagedentityid AND s.monitorid IN (SELECT MonitorId FROM Monitor WHERE MonitorName = 'System.Health.EntityState') 

The Alert table contains all alerts currently open in OpsMgr. This includes resolved alerts until they are groomed out of the database. To get all alerts across all instances of a given monitor use the following query and substitute in the required monitor name:

SELECT * FROM Alert WHERE ProblemID IN (SELECT MonitorId FROM Monitor WHERE MonitorName = 'Microsoft.SQLServer.2005.DBEngine.ServiceMonitor')

To retrieve all alerts for all instances of a specific class use the following query and substitute in the required table name, in this example MT_DBEngine is used to look for SQL alerts:

SELECT * FROM Alert WHERE BaseManagedEntityID IN (SELECT BaseManagedEntityID from MT_DBEngine)

To determine which table is currently being written to for event and performance data use the following query:

SELECT * FROM PartitionTables WHERE IsCurrent = 1

To retrieve events generated by a specific rule use the following query and substitute in the required rule ID:

SELECT * FROM Event_00 WHERE RuleId = (SELECT RuleId FROM Rules WHERE RuleName = 'Microsoft.Windows.Server.2003.OperatingSystem.CleanShutdown.Collection ')

To retrieve all events generated by rules in a specific Management Pack the following query can be used where the Management Pack name is substituted with the required value:

SELECT * FROM EventAllView WHERE RuleID IN (SELECT RuleId FROM Rules WHERE ManagementPackId = (SELECT ManagementPackId FROM ManagementPack WHERE MPName = 'Microsoft.Windows.Server.2003'))

Number of instances of a type:  (Number of disks, computers, databases, etc that OpsMgr has discovered) 

SELECT mt.ManagedTypeID, mt.TypeName, COUNT(*) AS NumEntitiesByType
FROM BaseManagedEntity bme WITH(NOLOCK)
            LEFT JOIN ManagedType mt WITH(NOLOCK) ON mt.ManagedTypeID = bme.BaseManagedTypeID
WHERE bme.IsDeleted = 0
GROUP BY mt.ManagedTypeID, mt.TypeName
ORDER BY COUNT(*) DESC

To retrieve all performance data for a given rule in a readable format use the following query: (change the r.RuleName value – get list from Rules Table)

SELECT bme.Path, pc.ObjectName, pc.CounterName, ps.PerfmonInstanceName, pdav.SampleValue, pdav.TimeSampled
FROM PerformanceDataAllView AS pdav with (NOLOCK)
INNER JOIN PerformanceSource ps on pdav.PerformanceSourceInternalId = ps.PerformanceSourceInternalId
INNER JOIN PerformanceCounter pc on ps.PerformanceCounterId = pc.PerformanceCounterId
INNER JOIN Rules r on ps.RuleId = r.RuleId
INNER JOIN BaseManagedEntity bme on ps.BaseManagedEntityID = bme.BaseManagedEntityID
WHERE r.RuleName = 'Microsoft.Windows.Server.2003.LogicalDisk.FreeSpace.Collection'
GROUP BY PerfmonInstanceName, ObjectName, CounterName, SampleValue, TimeSampled, bme.path
ORDER BY bme.path, PerfmonInstanceName, TimeSampled

To determine what discoveries are still associated with a computer – helpful in finding old stale computer objects in the console that are no longer agent managed, or desired.

select BME.FullName, DS.DiscoveryRuleID, D.DiscoveryName from typedmanagedentity TME
Join BaseManagedEntity BME ON TME.BaseManagedEntityId = BME.BaseManagedEntityId
JOIN DiscoverySourceToTypedManagedEntity DSTME ON TME.TypedManagedEntityID = DSTME.TypedManagedEntityID
JOIN DiscoverySource DS ON DS.DiscoverySourceID = DSTME.DiscoverySourceID
JOIN Discovery D ON DS.DiscoveryRuleID=D.DiscoveryID
Where BME.Fullname like '%ComputerName%'

To dump out all the rules and monitors that have overrides, and display the context and instance of the override:

select rv.DisplayName as WorkFlowName, OverrideName, mo.Value as OverrideValue,
mt.TypeName as OverrideScope, bme.DisplayName as InstanceName, bme.Path as InstancePath,
mpv.DisplayName as ORMPName, mo.LastModified as LastModified
from ModuleOverride mo
inner join managementpackview mpv on mpv.Id = mo.ManagementPackId
inner join ruleview rv on rv.Id = mo.ParentId
inner join ManagedType mt on mt.managedtypeid = mo.TypeContext
left join BaseManagedEntity bme on bme.BaseManagedEntityId = mo.InstanceContext
Where mpv.Sealed = 0
UNION ALL
select mv.DisplayName as WorkFlowName, OverrideName, mto.Value as OverrideValue,
mt.TypeName as OverrideScope, bme.DisplayName as InstanceName, bme.Path as InstancePath,
mpv.DisplayName as ORMPName, mto.LastModified as LastModified
from MonitorOverride mto
inner join managementpackview mpv on mpv.Id = mto.ManagementPackId
inner join monitorview mv on mv.Id = mto.MonitorId
inner join ManagedType mt on mt.managedtypeid = mto.TypeContext
left join BaseManagedEntity bme on bme.BaseManagedEntityId = mto.InstanceContext
Where mpv.Sealed = 0
Order By mpv.DisplayName

 

 

 

 

Agent Info:

To find all managed computers that are currently down and not pingable:

SELECT bme.DisplayName,s.LastModified as LastModifiedUTC, dateadd(hh,-5,s.LastModified) as 'LastModifiedCST (GMT-5)'
FROM state AS s, BaseManagedEntity AS bme
WHERE s.basemanagedentityid = bme.basemanagedentityid
AND s.monitorid
IN (SELECT MonitorId FROM Monitor WHERE MonitorName = 'Microsoft.SystemCenter.HealthService.ComputerDown')
AND s.Healthstate = '3' AND bme.IsDeleted = '0'
ORDER BY s.Lastmodified DESC

All managed computers count: 

SELECT COUNT(*) AS NumManagedComps FROM (
SELECT bme2.BaseManagedEntityID
FROM BaseManagedEntity bme WITH (NOLOCK)
            INNER JOIN BaseManagedEntity bme2 WITH (NOLOCK) ON bme2.BaseManagedEntityID = bme.TopLevelHostEntityID
WHERE bme2.IsDeleted = 0
            AND bme2.IsDeleted = 0
            AND bme2.BaseManagedTypeID = (SELECT TOP 1 ManagedTypeID FROM ManagedType WHERE TypeName = 'microsoft.windows.computer')
GROUP BY bme2.BaseManagedEntityID
) AS Comps

To find a computer name from a HealthServiceID (guid from the Agent proxy alerts)

select DisplayName, Path, basemanagedentityid from basemanagedentity where basemanagedentityid = 'guid'

To view the agent patch list (all hotfixes applied to all agents)

select bme.path AS 'Agent Name', hs.patchlist AS 'Patch List' from MT_HealthService hs
inner join BaseManagedEntity bme on hs.BaseManagedEntityId = bme.BaseManagedEntityId
order by path

To view all agents missing a specific hotfix (change the KB number below to the one you are looking for):

select bme.path AS 'Agent Name', hs.patchlist AS 'Patch List' from MT_HealthService hs
inner join BaseManagedEntity bme on hs.BaseManagedEntityId = bme.BaseManagedEntityId
where hs.patchlist not like '%951380%'
order by path

Here is a query to see all Agents which are manually installed:

select bme.DisplayName from MT_HealthService mths
INNER JOIN BaseManagedEntity bme on bme.BaseManagedEntityId = mths.BaseManagedEntityId
where IsManuallyInstalled = 1

Here is a query that will set all agents back to Remotely Manageable:

UPDATE MT_HealthService
SET IsManuallyInstalled=0
WHERE IsManuallyInstalled=1

Now – the above query will set ALL agents back to “Remotely Manageable = Yes” in the console.  If you want to control it agent by agent – you need to specify it by name here:

UPDATE MT_HealthService
SET IsManuallyInstalled=0
WHERE IsManuallyInstalled=1
AND BaseManagedEntityId IN
(select BaseManagedEntityID from BaseManagedEntity
where BaseManagedTypeId = 'AB4C891F-3359-3FB6-0704-075FBFE36710'
AND DisplayName = 'servername.domain.com')

Get the instance space of all agents  (Thanks to Hui and Michael Pearson)

Data Warehouse Database Section:

Alerts Section:

To get all raw alert data from the data warehouse to build reports from:

select * from Alert.vAlertResolutionState ars
inner join Alert.vAlertDetail adt on ars.alertguid = adt.alertguid
inner join Alert.vAlert alt on ars.alertguid = alt.alertguid

To view data on all alerts modified by a specific user:

select ars.alertguid, alertname, alertdescription, statesetbyuserid, resolutionstate, statesetdatetime, severity, priority, managedentityrowID, repeatcount
from Alert.vAlertResolutionState ars
inner join Alert.vAlert alt on ars.alertguid = alt.alertguid
where statesetbyuserid like '%username%'
order by statesetdatetime

To view a count of all alerts closed by all users:

select statesetbyuserid, count(*) as 'Number of Alerts'
from Alert.vAlertResolutionState ars
where resolutionstate = '255'
group by statesetbyuserid
order by 'Number of Alerts' DESC

Events Section:

To inspect total events in DW, and then break it down per day:  (this helps us know what we will be grooming out, and look for partitcular day event storms)

SELECT CASE WHEN(GROUPING(CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), DateTime, 101)) = 1)
THEN 'All Days'
ELSE CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), DateTime, 101) END AS DayAdded,
COUNT(*) AS NumEventsPerDay
FROM Event.vEvent
GROUP BY CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), DateTime, 101) WITH ROLLUP
ORDER BY DayAdded DESC

Most Common Events by event number:  (This helps us know which event ID's are the most common in the database)

SELECT top 50 EventDisplayNumber, COUNT(*) AS TotalEvents
FROM Event.vEvent
GROUP BY EventDisplayNumber
ORDER BY TotalEvents DESC

Most common events by event number and raw event description (this will take a very long time to run but it shows us not only event ID - but a description of the event to help understand which MP is the generating the noise)

SELECT top 50 EventDisplayNumber, Rawdescription, COUNT(*) AS TotalEvents
FROM Event.vEvent evt
inner join Event.vEventDetail evtd on evt.eventoriginid = evtd.eventoriginid
GROUP BY EventDisplayNumber, Rawdescription
ORDER BY TotalEvents DESC

inner join Event.vEventDetail evd on ev.eventoriginid = evd.eventoriginid
inner join Event.vEventParameter evp on ev.eventoriginid = evp.eventoriginid
where eventdisplaynumber = '528'

To search for all computers who have NOT logged a specific event in the DW:

Grooming in the DataWarehouse: 

Grooming no longer uses SQL agent jobs.  Grooming is handled by scheduled stored procedures, that run much more frequently, which provides less impact than in the previous version. 

Default grooming for the DW for each dataset, to examine Data Warehouse grooming settings:

SELECT AggregationIntervalDurationMinutes, BuildAggregationStoredProcedureName, GroomStoredProcedureName, MaxDataAgeDays, GroomingIntervalMinutes FROM StandardDatasetAggregation

The first row is the interval in minutes.
NULL is raw data, 60 is hourly, and 1440 is daily.
The second and third row shows what data it is
MaxDataAgeDays has the retention period in days - this is the field to update if the administrator wants to lower the days of retention.
RAW alert – 400 days
RAW event – 100 days
RAW perf – 10 days (hourly and daily perf = 400 days)
RAW state – 180 days  (hourly and daily state = 400 days)

Here is a better view of the current data retention in your data warehouse:

select ds.datasetDefaultName AS 'Dataset Name', sda.AggregationTypeId AS 'Agg Type 0=raw, 20=Hourly, 30=Daily', sda.MaxDataAgeDays AS 'Retention Time in Days'
from dataset ds, StandardDatasetAggregation sda
WHERE ds.datasetid = sda.datasetid
ORDER by ds.datasetDefaultName

To view the number of days of total data of each type in the DW:

SELECT DATEDIFF(d, MIN(DWCreatedDateTime), GETDATE()) AS [Current] FROM Alert.vAlert
SELECT DATEDIFF(d, MIN(DateTime), GETDATE()) AS [Current] FROM Event.vEvent
SELECT DATEDIFF(d, MIN(DateTime), GETDATE()) AS [Current] FROM Perf.vPerfRaw
SELECT DATEDIFF(d, MIN(DateTime), GETDATE()) AS [Current] FROM Perf.vPerfHourly
SELECT DATEDIFF(d, MIN(DateTime), GETDATE()) AS [Current] FROM Perf.vPerfDaily
SELECT DATEDIFF(d, MIN(DateTime), GETDATE()) AS [Current] FROM State.vStateRaw
SELECT DATEDIFF(d, MIN(DateTime), GETDATE()) AS [Current] FROM State.vStateHourly
SELECT DATEDIFF(d, MIN(DateTime), GETDATE()) AS [Current] FROM State.vStateDaily

To view the oldest and newest recorded timestamps of each data type in the DW:

select min(DateTime) from Event.vEvent
select max(DateTime) from Event.vEvent
select min(DateTime) from Perf.vPerfRaw
select max(DateTime) from Perf.vPerfRaw
select min(DWCreatedDateTime) from Alert.vAlert
select max(DWCreatedDateTime) from Alert.vAlert

 

 

AEM Queries (Data Warehouse):

Default query to return all RAW AEM data: 

select * from [CM].[vCMAemRaw] Rw
inner join dbo.AemComputer Computer on Computer.AemComputerRowID = Rw.AemComputerRowID
inner join dbo.AemUser Usr on Usr.AemUserRowId = Rw.AemUserRowId
inner join dbo.AemErrorGroup EGrp on Egrp.ErrorGroupRowId = Rw.ErrorGroupRowId
Inner join dbo.AemApplication App on App.ApplicationRowId = Egrp.ApplicationRowId

Count the raw crashes per day:

SELECT CONVERT(char(10), DateTime, 101) AS "Crash Date (by Day)", COUNT(*) AS "Number of Crashes"
FROM [CM].[vCMAemRaw]
GROUP BY CONVERT(char(10), DateTime, 101)
ORDER BY "Crash Date (by Day)" DESC

Count the total number of raw crashes in the DW database:

select count(*) from CM.vCMAemRaw

Default grooming for the DW for the AEM dataset:  (Aggregated data kept for 400 days, RAW 30 days by default)

SELECT AggregationTypeID, BuildAggregationStoredProcedureName, GroomStoredProcedureName, MaxDataAgeDays, GroomingIntervalMinutes
FROM StandardDatasetAggregation WHERE BuildAggregationStoredProcedureName = 'AemAggregate'

To get better performance manually:

Update Statistics (will help speed up reports and takes less time than a full reindex):

EXEC sp_updatestats

Show index fragmentation (to determine how badly you need a reindex – logical scan frag > 10% = bad. Scan density below 80 = bad):

DBCC SHOWCONTIG

DBCC SHOWCONTIG WITH FAST (less data than above – in case you don’t have time)

Reindex the database:

USE OperationsManager
go
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
SET ANSI_PADDING ON
SET ANSI_WARNINGS ON
SET ARITHABORT ON
SET CONCAT_NULL_YIELDS_NULL ON
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
SET NUMERIC_ROUNDABORT OFF

  • This is a continuation of my other post, on general alert grooming: How grooming and auto-resolution

  • How 'bout a query that show space used by type, being alert, event, perf, state for the dw?

  • You can get space used by type by using the large table query....  which is why I include and use that one all the time.  It could be made prettier... but it works.  There is also a report in SQL 2005 SP2 for reporting on table by size....  which will show you this.  The tables are named to be fairly self explanatory.

  • I've been getting a few questions lately about slow performance with the console so I thought a post

  • Hi - This is a great post.

    I was wondering if you could help me with a question.

    In the view “PerformanceDataAllView” in the “OperationsManager” database, what do the columns “TimeSampled” and “TimeAdded” mean?

    Thanks,

    Sna

  • Hello,

    Can you post a query one would run to get availability of a server for a certain time period?  

    Thanks,

  • what another fantastic resourse!!

  • Could you help with a query to retrieve Dell hardware with critical alert state = New.

    Thanks

  • Hello everyone,

    I am trying to create report something like this,

    User Name              Number of Closed Alerts

    operatorname1             245

    Operatorname2             165

    I am querying the OperationManager Database my query is,

    SELECT     LastModifiedBy AS 'User Name', COUNT(*) AS 'Number of Closed Alerts'

    FROM         AlertView

    WHERE     (ResolutionState = '255')

    GROUP BY LastModifiedBy

    ORDER BY 'Number of Closed Alerts'

    I am confused little in the alert view table which filed should I use for the date and time parameters.

     if I just want to get the closed alert count by specific user and by specific time is that field going to be "TimeResolved" or which one?

    Thank you.

  • I already blogged on a closed alert report:

    http://blogs.technet.com/kevinholman/archive/2008/07/21/auditing-on-alerts-from-the-data-warehouse.aspx

    Does that not work?

  • Hi Kevin,

    Your report works fine, but I needed to get last 7 days data which not included in your report because you are getting data from Datawarehouse by default we know Opsmgr keeps 7 days alert data in the OperationManager DB so I figured out from your query and modify it against OperationManager DB.

    My issue was I could not figured out which field should I for data and time parameter. I think I found out,

    Here is the final query I believe this is correct  

    SELECT     LastModifiedBy AS 'User Name', COUNT(*) AS 'Number of Closed Alerts'

    FROM         AlertView

    WHERE     (ResolutionState = '255')

    and TimeResolved between @startdate and @enddate

    GROUP BY LastModifiedBy

    ORDER BY 'Number of Closed Alerts'

    Now I have another issue, SQL server TimeZone

    SQL server time  4 hours ahead than system time when I pull data from Report manager I am not getting accurate data from database.  Do you know how can we fix this issue?

    Thank you.

  • This a great topic

    Thanks
