You will find these practices helpful in using MOM Reporting to best advantage.
Install MOM Reporting on a separate computer
Install MOM Reporting on a computer other than the database computer. This prevents MOM Reporting-related memory and CPU usage from having a negative impact on Microsoft Operations Manager 2000 (MOM) database performance. When you do this, report generation times may increase due to network latency, but the impact on the MOM database and central computer performance is reduced.
Select specific report criteria
Reduce the size of the result set queried for reporting by:
Avoid scheduling regular reports that require you to keep
intensive auditing enabled
Generate reports that require you to enable intensive auditing only when needed, to track specific problems or monitor usage. Avoid scheduling these reports regularly:
Avoid scheduling regular reports that collect stored event
Generate reports that collect stored event parameters as needed, to track specific problems or monitor usage. Avoid scheduling these reports regularly. Disable the event parameter collection when these reports are not needed:
Schedule report generation
MOM Reporting allows you to schedule report generation for reports that are used on a regular basis. Follow these guidelines for scheduling report generation:
Use performance graphs
For tracking specific performance counters for a short period of duration, use the performance graphs available on the MOM Administrator Console or Web Console.
Use views for monitoring events
To monitor events matching specific criteria, use custom event views in the MOM Administrator Console or the Web Console.
Disable reporting rules not being used
Disable reporting rules that are not being used to reduce data collection.
