Hi All,

Thanks in advance,

We observed that some performance issues in our SCOM environment. Is there a way i can check the frequency of the Monitors/Rules/Discoveries in the SCOM environment either by a powershell script or SQL query.

Thank & Regards,

    Hi Anu,

    what you can do in order to get more information about the workflows in your environment is:

    1. Exports MPs and use a tool (MP Viewer) to check those settings
    2. You can also generate an Effective Monitoring Configuration Report, which will show you wich rules//monitors/disocveries are running on a particular computer or even a group of computers, alonmg with all default settings and Overrides

    SCOM Effective Monitoring Configuration Report

    1. Other performance optimiuzations
      It is important to mention that most of the performance issues that arise with SCOM and its infrastructure are not related to MP, but to how the management group has been sized, build and configured. In regards to this I wrote an article, which summarizes all the configurations, whiuch can help you optimize the performance of your management group. So, if you want to start optimizing the performance of your SCOM management group, I would recommend you starting not with MPs, but with this article:

    System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) Management Group Performance Optimizations

    You will find out that the article covers not only DB related optimizations, but also application and OS related configurations. Afterwards, if you still have issues with performance you can move to analysing MPs.
