Spotlight on SQL Server Enterprise 11.7 - Management Pack for SCOM User Guide

Custom views

A Spotlight display (Heat map, Spotlight today, Alarms by time or Alarm log) can be filtered to the connections in the custom view.

Create as many custom views as makes sense to your enterprise.

Add a custom view

Click Add Custom View from Monitored connections to open New connection view properties.

Add / remove connections from a custom view Right click on the view in Monitored connections. Select Properties to open Connection view properties.
Rename a custom view Right click on the view in Monitored connections. Select Rename view.
Delete a custom view Right click on the view in Monitored connections. Select Delete view.

 

Custom views and the Spotlight deployment

Custom views are created in the Spotlight Client and saved with the Spotlight Diagnostic Server. All Spotlight Clients connecting to the Spotlight Diagnostic Server have access to the same custom views.

Where a Spotlight Diagnostic Server is federated, any monitored connection in the federation can be added to any custom view. All Spotlight Clients have access to all custom views in the federation. When a Spotlight Diagnostic Server joins a federation then the custom views from that Spotlight Diagnostic Server will be seen by all Spotlight Clients in the federation. Any two custom views with the same name will be merged into one view. When a Spotlight Diagnostic Server leaves a federation, the custom views will stay with the federation, however any monitored connections connected to the Spotlight Diagnostic Server that has left will no longer be accessible to the federation.

Mobile: An equivalent feature to custom views is available on Spotlight Mobile, however there is no correlation between the custom views created in the Spotlight Client and the equivalent created on Spotlight Mobile. You may choose to recreate custom views on your mobile device, however they have no relationship to the custom views created on the Spotlight Client.
