Perf Group

The Perf Group refers to a set of common performance monitors that are grouped together. It can be useful to generate custom reports using the Advanced reports feature.

How this works

To understand how it works, let us consider an example. You monitor CPU usage for 5 devices in your network. The CPU Utilization metric associated to each of these devices may be different in terms of the protocol, for example CPU usage for a Windows device will be monitored using WMI, for other devices CPU usage maybe monitored using SNMP.

Both the SNMP-based CPU metric and WMI-based metric are grouped together into one Perf Group namely CPU Utilization.

So, effectively those 5 devices are somehow connected to each other by the CPU Utilization metrics categorized into a Perf Group.

When creating a custom report using the Advanced report feature, you can select a Perf Group and a report will be created for all the devices to which that metric is associated.

How to add a performance monitor to a Perf Group?

By default, OpManage has three Perf Group categories:

  • CPU Utilization
  • Memory Utilization
  • Disk Utilization

Apart from this, you can also create custom Perf Groups for other monitors as per your preferences. To Create a new Perf Group, follow the steps below.

  • Navigate to Settings > Performance Monitors.
  • Click on the Edit icon for the monitor which you want to add to a new Perf Group.
  • Click on the drop down next to the Perf Group field.
  • Click on Add New and type the name to create a new group.

You can also add a new custom monitor to a Perf Group while creating a new SNMP monitor.
