How to View a Performance Baseline in Operations Manager 2007
Updated: May 22, 2009
Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 R2, Operations Manager 2007 SP1
Baselines can be visualized only by selecting the performance object that they were created within the Performance view. You can review the monitor's baseline after waiting at least 10 minutes or for one business cycle, whichever is greater. When a baseline is paused, the Performance view does not display the baseline envelope for future business cycles. It displays only the baseline envelope for the business cycle up until it was paused.
