Differences in SCOM Performance Monitoring output RRS feed

  • Question

  • whilst monitoring a Windows Virtual Server I have noticed a slight difference in the output produced.

    On the virtual server itself, perfmon was reporting 90% memory usage. Yet, looking at the same time period within SCOM 2012, SCOM was reporting the server to be consuming 86%. This is consistent throughout the day, an average 4 - 5% difference between the server and scom.

    Is this differential normal? What causes it and is it anything to be concerned about?
