Please note the following information about collecting performance information through this Management Pack. The information below is directly from the management pack documentation:

Enabling Performance Threshold Rules

It is very difficult to deliver a performance threshold rule that is suitable for most environments; therefore, performance threshold rules are initially disabled. Before you enable a performance threshold rule, you should establish a baseline for the relevant performance counters, and then apply the appropriate overrides to define and enable a suitable threshold for your environment.

Tuning Performance Collection Rules

Although the Operations Manager management pack for CRM 2013 does not contain any default performance thresholds, all the performance collection rules are turned on by default. These performance collection rules write to the Operations Manager database and the data can be used to analyze performance trends and create reports. You can also configure performance collection rules to generate alerts if they surpass certain thresholds.
