We just migrated an old reporting server (running on 2005) to 2012 and some of the database performance monitoring jobs have started failing. I looked into them and found that they use a couple of functions in the msdb in a schema called MS_PerfDashboard, but the schema is missing on the new server. I had a quick browse online and found that people use this for performance monitoring, but what I couldn't find is where the functions came from originally. Are they part of an old SQL version? A plugin? Or just a script of functions that someone came up with?

You can find the Performance Dashboad here:

From memory there is a setup.sql file which should recreate the objects for you.
