For those of you who don't know, we configured a PI System to collect data from several different data sources around the Hilton San Francisco Union Square Hotel for the 2016 SF Users Conference. We called this project the Internet of Hotel Things, as we were pulling data from IoT sensors, smartbadges, HVAC systems, IT assets, and more. I thought that this would be a great place to implement the IT Asset Monitor Toolkit in order to help me monitor the status and performance of the cloud servers that were running the system.
I built out a pretty simple AF hierarchy using the kit's templates:
Also, I added a couple formula attributes to the Windows server template:
Lastly, I modified the example display to show me the KPIs for the three servers that I was monitoring:
Just thought that I would go ahead and share this use case with you all!
