Book Description

As organizations become more and more dependent upon a powerful IT infrastructure, there is increased pressure on administrators to be able to monitor and troubleshoot quickly and effectively. Systems Center Operations Manager makes this possible, giving administrators a simple way to manage the performance of their infrastructure and allowing them to focus on steps to optimize and improve it.

Beginning with an introduction to the architecture of SCOM, you will then learn how to integrate and align it with the needs of your business. The book then covers how to configure System Center R2 Operations Manager, deploy monitoring agents, and use the admin console. You will learn about best practices for overrides and tuning, tips for effective maintenance, and learn to monitor applications across a wide-range of platforms within the environment, creating advanced customizations. You will finish by integrating Operations Manager with other R2 components and discovering the powerful data you can collect using this vital tool.
