Windows System Stability Index
Product Name: Windows System Stability Index
Description : This agent procedure gets an average of the Windows System Stability Index and puts the result in a Custom Field so you can see its reliability. This can help find endpoints that will have problems such as application and operating system crashes, slowness, and other problems that can negatively affect the system. This agent procedure is a good example of VSA’s flexibility and shows that if VSA doesn’t do something natively then you can write an Agent Procedure to add the functionality.
This is based on the Windows Reliability data collected over the lifetime of a system.
It is a weighted measurement calculated from the number of failures seen over a rolling
historical period. The index value is calculated over the preceding 28 days, although the results for considerably more days can be seen in the Reliability Monitor itself. Reliability events in the System Stability Monitor will describe the specific failures for you to investigate further.
There is documentation included in the package but below is an outline.
This will require one custom field named System Stability Index (Average) of type String. Once
the Custom Fields are created, you can import the Agent Procedure.
You can create Custom Fields in the Audit module by going
VSA > Audit > View Individual Data > Machine
Next, import the Agent Procedure by going to:
VSA > Agent Procedures > Schedule / Create
Finally, click on Import Folder/Procedure and upload
the extracted XML file provided in the zip file (you will need to extract it
from the zip file).
After it has been imported, edit the Agent Procedure and make sure the
custom fields are filled in for every ‘updateSystemInfo’ command in the Agent
Procedure. If the first set of commands have it properly filled in, then the
rest of the code should also be mapped properly.
