OpsMgr 2007: Registry keys to control the refresh of the admin console

Source:  The Manageability Team Blog


Registry Key to control the number of objects to fetch Tasks/Reports:

DWORD value
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Console

Possible values:

-1 (xFFFFFF) : unlimited number of objects allowed to be selected for fetching tasks/reports
0 : tasks/reports are not going to be populated for selected items in the view
Integer value > 0 : maximum number of simultaneously selected objects for which tasks/reports are going to be generated. The default value is set to 10


Registry Keys for UI Refresh:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Console\EventQuery
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Console\AlertQuery
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Console\StateQuery

The following values can be added under those keys:

FullUpdate, DWORD = boolean value, 0 off, 1 on
PartialUpdate, DWORD = boolean value, 0 off, 1 on

Event View/Alert View/State View are programmed to do auto updates. Partial Updates are every 15/30 seconds and Full Updates are every 5 minutes, thus when these views are left open they will be constantly fetching data from the Server based upon the values set.
