Can't Create Report With More Than Defaults

May 26, 2010 at 7:49 PM

Codeplex Crew:

Trying to generate a report off PAL and I cannot seem to generate anything past the defaults on System Overview & SQL 2005.

When I try to add counters (i.e. Ave Disk Queue Length) they are not making it to the graphs.

Is there a template/steps to capture this info like the nice demo report?

If you want Avg Disk Queue Length to show up, then you have to create a new ANALYSIS node in the PAL threshold file which is XML based.

If the log contains the Avg Disk Queue Length, then the easiest solution is to use PAL v2.0 Alpha 5 or better and use the AllCounterStats feature to produce a chart and stats on all counters found in the log.

Unfortunately, I don't have any good documentation on creating analyses yet.
