How to view data in the Perfomance viewer: both for Real-Time and Historical

Answer

Policies will need to be enabled that monitor and send the data desired.

Viewing real-time performance data:

The Performance Viewer is a console included with Monitor Solution that allows viewing of real-time performance data. Performance data is available from both the Monitor Agent and the Remote Monitor Server.

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Home menu, click Monitoring and Alerting.
  2. In the Launch Performance Viewer Web part, either enter a name of the computer or use the computer browser to choose a computer.
  3. In the Registered Metrics dialog box, select the metric data that you want to monitor, and then click OK (the limit is 50).
    • The performance viewer begins monitoring the computer and displays the following information:
      • Graph - Displays graphical performance data. The data is scaled to fit within the limits of the graph. If you place the mouse pointer over a point on a graph line, the monitored metric data displays next to the mouse pointer. If you monitor multiple instance metrics, each instance has a separate graph line. You can use the select metrics option to monitor different metrics.
      • Metrics - The metrics section displays all metric data that is monitored.
      • Processes - Displays the processes currently running on a monitored computer.
      • Events - Displays All Windows NT event data.
      • Ports - Displays the status of the monitored ports on the computer.
      • Text Data - Displays the retrieved text data for command, custom DLL, custom COM object, SNMP, SQL, and string-type Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) metrics. The predefined WMI metrics are the only metrics that collect this type of data. If you create or use a custom DLL, COM object, SNMP, or command metric that retrieves this data, it is also displayed in this section.

Viewing historical performance data:

The historical performance viewer is a console included with Monitor Solution allow viewing historical performance data. Historical data is available from both the Monitor Agent and the Remote Monitor Server.

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Actions menu, click Monitor > Historical.
  2. In the Computer field, enter a computer name.
  3. In From and To, specify the time period that you want view data for.
  4. To specify the metric data that you want to view, click Metrics, and use the Available Metrics dialog box, and then click OK.
  5. In the Summarized view, drag the mouse cursor across the graph to specify a range desired.
  6. In the Detailed view, select a point on the graph. If available, the data that was last gathered for the time (in relation to the selected point) is displayed in the following sections: Metrics, Processes, Events, Ports, and Text Data.
