You imported a Management Pack, now what… Part 6
In our final part of this blog series we are taking managing and monitoring with System Center to the next level.
For those who have missed the previous posts, here are the links:

- Part 2: Pre-work & Importing Management Packs
- Part 3: Exploring discoveries
- Part 4: Fine-tuning methodologies
- Part 5: Pro-active monitoring & maintenance tasks
In part 6, we are going to take it one step further and start creating our own dedicated views to make our work even easier.
Setting the scene
The Veeam Management Pack for System Center already has fantastic views in it, but sometimes you need to have more specific views for your infrastructure needs. For example, the Top VMs dashboard is a great view, but it shows you the top 10 VMs of your entire environment. Maybe you just need a view for a specific group of VMs (when you are for example an app owner). We already talked about creating specific groups, and that is something which we are going to use here also for the scoping.
In our example, we are going to create a few views based on a set of VMs that are allocated to a specific project. The project manager wants to have that data to be able to right-size the project when it goes into production. And he specifically wants to see the memory pressure on the specific VMs. I am convinced that you can come up with many examples or use-cases to create your own views.
The great thing about the System Center framework that this is very easy to do, so let’s get started.
