Gotchas while using OMS for server key performance indicators

I have written several blog posts to assist with providing methods to visualize server health in Microsoft OMS (www.microsoft.com/oms). These include:

What could server health monitoring look like in OMS?

Using OMS to visualize server health based on processor utilization

Using OMS to visualize server health based on free disk space


Using OMS to visualize server health based on memory utilization


Approaches available to provide heartbeat alerts in OMS


 

Today’s blog post will wrap up that topic with a brief discussion on any “gotcha’s” that I ran into while working with these approaches. These include: false alerts due to no data collected, crossing the 500 mb/day limit on a free tier workspace, and an Operations Manager management group which had issues reporting data into OMS.
