Getting performance report chart data

Several customers asked us lately if there is a way of getting actual values the performance report charts are generated on in a tabular form. Even thought this is not possible in the Performance report it is in fact possible with the Performance Detail report.

Performance Detail report could be either run directly or as a drill down from the Performance report. The report shows detailed performance chart along with a summary table below. If you choose to display histogram in the parameter block a “Detail Table” link appears inside the summary table. The link allows you to see a value table the chart is based on.

Unfortunately in RTM version of SCOM the “Detail Table” link is disabled for non-histogram reports. However if you export this non-histogram report to Excel or XML format the value table will be exported as well and could be easily viewed or used in your custom application.
