Built-in Health Dashboard
The Health Dashboard report offers a single interface that gathers information about the BMC Decision Support for Server Automation configuration settings and assesses their health.
The dashboard report displays the following configuration settings:
- BMC Decision Support for Server Automation version
- Database platform, type, and version
- Database size
- Tablespace free space
- ETL status
- Average, maximum, and minimum ETL run time
The following figure shows the dashboard report with sample values:
Before you begin using the Health Dashboard report
If the database server is running on Oracle, before you upgrade to version 8.6, ensure that the data warehouse user has been granted the following permissions:
- GRANT SELECT ON dba_data_files TO datawarehouseUser
- GRANT SELECT ON dba_free_space TO datawarehouseUser
If these permissions have not been granted before upgrade, you need to compile the V_DB_SIZE view and then run the dashboard report.
If the database server is running on SQL Server, the data warehouse user must be granted the following permission:
GRANT VIEW SERVER STATE TO datawarehouseUser
