PAL report verses SCOM 2007

Oct 1, 2010 at 6:59 PM

PAL data for one of my servers shows process que length of 38 and 80% CPU utilization. SCOM data which is sampled at 15 minute intervals does not show same CPU utilization for that time period. What is sample period for PAL and is it an average. New to PAL but love the tool. Trying to get hardware replaced but data does not agree.
