The following example shows how to get the computers that are running Windows in a Management Group and how to display the health state and number of alerts for each computer.

The PartialMonitoringObject class is the base class for the MonitoringObject and the PartialMonitoringObjectGroup classes.

A partial monitoring object is an object for which only the standard set of monitoring object properties is defined. Any custom properties of the object's class are omitted. Because the Operations Manager database omits custom property values when responding to the query, using partial monitoring objects decreases the load on the database and improves query performance.

For more information about this class, see Monitoring Object and Partial Monitoring Object Comparison.
