Infrastructure Health Dashboard

With SQL 2008 R2 reporting services you get a huge amount of extra features that you can use in your reports. The infrastructure dashboard screenshot below is a dashboard I built using SQL 2008 R2.
The data for the dashboard is coming straight from the SCOM Operations Database.

Some of the queries that is used:
For the Exchange part:
select sum( case alert.severity when 1 then 1 else 0 end ) as warning, sum(case alert.severity when 2 then 1 else 0 end) as Critical,
sum(repeatcount) as RuleAlertTotalNumber
from alert with(nolock) inner join basemanagedentity with(nolock)
on alert.basemanagedentityid = basemanagedentity.basemanagedentityid inner join managedtype as MT1 with(nolock)
on basemanagedentity.basemanagedtypeid = MT1.ManagedTypeId inner join rules with(nolock)
on alert.ruleid = rules.ruleid inner join managedtype as MT2 with(nolock)
on rules.targetmanagedentitytype = MT2.managedtypeid inner join managementpack with(nolock)
on rules.managementpackid = managementpack.managementpackid
where resolutionstate<>255 and mpname like ‘%Exchange%’

You can then go and take the above query and change the last line to the other Management Pack names. One query per vertical graph
Query for the C: drive status rev counter graph
SELECT count(*)
FROM state AS s with(nolock), BaseManagedEntity as bme
WHERE s.basemanagedentityid = bme.basemanagedentityid AND s.monitorid IN (SELECT MonitorId FROM Monitor with(nolock) WHERE MonitorName like ‘%logicaldisk.freespace%’)
and healthstate>=2 and displayname like ‘C:%’

Query for the TOP 15 parts of the dashboard
select top 15 count(*), a.alertstringname
from alertview a with(nolock), rules r, managementpack m
where a.monitoringruleid=r.ruleid
and r.managementpackid=m.managementpackid
and mpname like ‘%Exchange%’ and a.resolutionstate<>255
and a.timeraised>=’2012/02/01 00:00:00′
and a.timeraised is not null
group by a.alertstringname

Change the “and mpname like ‘%Exchange%’ part to the other management packs for which you want to display Top 15 alerts for.

This dashboard has drill down capabilities, for example if you click on the “C: Drives unhealthy” rev counter you get the screen below

This dashboard showing the disk status detail is basically a sub report that is launched as an action from the dashboard when you click on the rev counter.
From this detail dashboard if you now click on any server or the corresponding status icon the SCOM web console health explorer for that chosen server will be opened showing you even more detail
