An IT outage always leads to a negative business impact on your organization. Monitoring is the strongest line of defense in any datacenter environment. Modern data centers need extra care with simplified management and strong analytical capabilities to predict and prevent disasters.
To achieve the best result IT Professionals are using a plethora of tools to build a complete monitoring solution. Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) powered by Microsoft’s Azure Cloud Platform provides more predictive & analytical capabilities to keep your data center healthy.
Savision’s newest whitepaper, written by Microsoft MVP Janaka Rangama, will explain:
- What Microsoft Operations Management Suite is and how it can simplify data center management.
- How to leverage OMS Log Analytics to analyze, predict and protect your Linux workloads.
- How to integrate System Center Operations Manager with OMS for extended monitoring.
- How to harness the power of Business Service Management with Savision Live Maps using Microsoft OMS.
Microsoft Operations Management suite is a born-in-the-cloud management suite which is capable of managing and protecting heterogeneous on-premises, cloud and hybrid data centers. Learn from MVP Janaka Rangama, how to make the most out of Microsoft OMS, how to use it to monitor your Linux workloads, and how to successfully integrate it with SCOM & Savision’s Live Maps.
That may be because the Service tile has always been a bit larger than any of the perspective views. Or, it could be that the supervisor always thinks things are far worse than they actually are. What the customer wanted in his support request, was something more along the lines of this:
As you can see, it gives a different way to easily recognize if the End-Users are impacted, versus our normal health roll-up monitors. It also can draw your attention to those that have an End-User impacted by an outage.
Savision’s Live Maps uses several dependency monitors to create the status of the Services and different Live Maps views. With some simple editing, anyone can change the behavior of a Live Maps view. We have blogged about this previously:
This is the first time someone wanted to change the status behavior of a service.
I first started by disabling some of the basic monitors for a single service. This worked for a single service. However, if you have several services, this would take some time to do. I began looking deeper into how to change this globally for all services. If you are interested in making this kind of change on all of your services, the step-by-step instructions can be found in the following Knowledge Base (KB) article.
I have attached the Management Pack I created during the writing of the KB article to make it easy on everyone that wishes to have the Service status display only the End-User status. You can find that MP attached to the bottom of the KB article.
