WSUS Threshold profile

Hi Clint,

First of all, thanks for this fantastic tool..
It has been a privilege to attend your Vital Sign class during MSSU.

My question is pretty simple. Recently I've been involved into a WSUS infrastructure analisys and I started from a performance baseline. I did want to use PAL for analyze it but I had to split the analisys into 3 single analisys: System Overview, SQL Server 2005 and IIS. In addition WSUS provides its proper counter objects, so I had to analyze WSUS counter objects apart.
So the question is: Do you have any plan to create a WSUS threshold profile?

Thanks again

Hi robgram,

No one has approached me to do a WSUS threshold file. My free time is used up in the development of PAL v2.0, so I don't have time to write one nor the expertise in WSUS. The IIS threshold file and the SQL threshold file already have the System Overview threshold file built in, so you don't need to do a separate one on System Overview. You could combine both the IIS and SQL threshold files together using an XML editor, but there would be a lot of duplicates.
