The Monitoring Server Report Pack can generate detailed reports using Monitoring Server data. This is an optional feature. To view these reports, you must install SQL Server Reporting Services; otherwise, the only way to see Monitoring Server data is to write your own SQL queries against the Monitoring Server databases.
If you use SQL Server 2005, you must use SQL Server Reporting
Services 2005 with SP1 or SP2. If you use SQL Server 2008, you must
use SQL Server Reporting Services 2008. For details about SQL
Server Reporting Services, see Considerations for Installing
Reporting Services at
Additionally, if you use SQL Server 2005, to ensure that
reporting works correctly you should install two SQL Server
updates. For details about these updates, see Microsoft Knowledge
Base article 942662, "FIX: Message when you click the Back button
in Internet Explorer 7 to return to a SQL Server 2005 Reporting
Services report that contains one or more DateTime parameters:

The Monitoring Server Report Pack can be installed during the Monitoring Server installation process.
