Got a small issue. Due to wierdness of what im testing (lots of async requests strung together, and the measured "user transactions" being a composite of 2-10 of these requests) I have a table of sql data I extract and manipulate to look like perfmon counters and then import that data as a set of external monitors. I would like to create a set of default reports for manangements sake until i can get a more comprehensive set of results out (due to the complexity of the system, this can take while).
I looked at 9.5 becuase I heard about the wonderful new api for analysis, only to be disappointed when i read that they specifically do NOT support the importation of external monitors.
Has anyone solved this issue previously without a gui automation tool? maybe manipulating the data and LRR file directly? Or via ANY other method?

10. If you have filed a service request with HP/Mercury, what have they told you at this point with respect to your issue?
I will consult the case with our product experts, and I will get back to you.
I've not tried that. It seems if you can get it in xml along with the standard time-stamp you should be able to import and correlate.
- OR -
Figure out the schema for the LR_DB and write the data to it.
- OR -
Are there not native monitors (orignal SiteScope) in LR 9.5? If so, get local admin access so you can pull via LR native monitors all counters the server-under-test has to offer. You won't be able to get and SQL profiler stuff but you can get all other SQL counters.
