View Performance Charts

Applies To: Windows HPC Server 2008

In HPC Cluster Manager, you can view a graph of any of the performance metrics for a node over time.

For information about using HPC Cluster Manager, see Overview of HPC Cluster Manager.

To view performance charts

  1. In Node Management, in the Navigation Pane, click Nodes.

  2. In the List or Heat Map view, select a node.

  3. Right-click your selection, then click View Performance Charts.

  4. In the Performance Charts dialog box, in the Metrics drop-down list, select the performance metric you want to chart, then click Add.

Additional considerations

  • To add custom performance counters for your cluster, you can create an XML file that describes the metric to add, then import the new metric using the HPC PowerShell cmdlet Import-HpcMetric. You can also modify an existing metric (for example, you can change the sampling frequency) by overwriting the existing settings. For more information, see Customize Metrics Collection in Windows HPC Server 2008.

  • To open HPC Cluster Manager, click Start, point to All Programs, click Microsoft HPC Pack, and then click HPC Cluster Manager. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Continue.
