I have a couple templates in use and wanted to audit which servers were using which template. I'm sure this is right in front of my nose--but how can I tell what template a server is using?
There is no OOB way to do that simply. You could write a custom report against the DM repository potentially?
A common enhancement request is for a report template report and it is planned for DM 10.5 on the roadmap currently as part of other alerting improvements.
You can apply templates by tag to groups of servers just to baseline everything to known values. But there is no automated tracking if those templates were later changed for specific instances.
Thanks Scott. Any unofficial tips on how to build that custom report? I'm not totally sure where to even find what server is using what template and I've gone an little cross eyed looking this morning.
Also--is there any DM roadmap information you can share with the community? I'd be curious what all else you folks are hoping to get into 10.5 and even 11.0.
There are a few details that I'd like to share.
The key tables you probably want to look at are DefaultMetricThresholds (template metric settings), AlertTemplatesLookup (name of the template), and MetricThresholdInstances (metric settings for each instance).
Thanks Tep. That's perfect info to get me started.
