Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) Reporting and System Center Service Manager (SCSM) Data Warehouse Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) process
Or…How data moves from the FIM Service to the data warehouse (otherwise known as what on earth is all that disk activity and why is the Service Manager transaction log that size!!)
FIM Reporting adds a number of changes to the FIM Service. It introduces new tables and schema, and a SQL Server agent job. It also updates the SCSM configuration with a set of pre-defined management packs which describe FIM schema and reports to the Data Warehouse.
FIM Reporting flows data from the FIM Service to SCSM using one of three ETL processes (arguably they are not ETL processes but rather Extract processes). Once the data resides in SCSM the System Center Data Warehouse ETL processes archive the data for long term storage and reporting.
