Sample SWQL based reports

Hello -

This is likely a stretch here -

I have been tasked with using a SQL based reporting/dashboard tool to build some sample reports against the Solarwinds database.  The database schema definition is not released by the vendor.  Solarwinds interface has a SQL based custom report interface which uses their own SWQL syntax.  I have found some SWQL based reports online and converted to standard SQL syntax and they work great.  

Does anyone have experience with reporting on the Solarwinds database that would have some samples they could share.  It would be great to get some samples SQL that retrieves data such as : Top Hosts by CPU load, Top Hosts by Network Utilization, Top Hosts with running VMs
etc..

Thanks

I'd also suggest asking the same question on Thwack, and checking out the "Content Exchange" there. Lots of home-grown reports that you can use to either model or learn from.
