How to Create an Alert Logging Latency Report in Operations Manager 2007

Updated: May 22, 2009

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 R2

The following procedure is an example of how you create an alert logging latency report for a managed computer. An alert logging latency report shows you how much time it took from when an alert was generated until it was written into the Operations Manager database. An alert is not displayed in the Operations console until after it is written into the Operations Manager database. Alert latency can be a function of network delays in your environment.

This information is useful when considering service level agreements (SLA). You might not want to commit to an SLA of 2 minutes if alerts take longer than that to get written into the Operations Manager database.

noteNote
Operations Manager 2007 Reporting must be installed before you can run an alert logging latency report.

  1. Log on to the computer with an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrators role for the Operations Manager 2007 management group.

    noteNote
    You can further specify the timeframe for the report in the additional options in the Parameter Area.
