SCOM – System Center Operations Manager

Dakle treba da naučim SCOM, što je MS WIN proizvod (brrrr), ali sudbina je tako htela 😉
Par definicija :
System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) is a cross-platform data center management system for operating systems and hypervisors. It uses a single interface that shows state, health and performance information of computer systems. It also provides alerts generated according to some availability, performance, configuration or security situation being identified. It works with Microsoft Windows Server and Unix-based hosts.
Ovo da radi sa Unix-ima, nije baš skroz, pa recimo tačno 🙂
The basic idea is to place a piece of software, an agent, on the computer to be monitored. The agent watches several sources on that computer, including the Windows Event Log, for specific events or alerts generated by the applications executing on the monitored computer.
SCOM uses the term management pack to refer to a set of filtering rules specific to some monitored application. SCOM can be extended by importing management packs (MPs) which define how SCOM monitors systems. By default, SCOM only monitors some basic OS-related services, but new MPs can be imported to monitor services such as SQL servers, SharePoint, Apache, Tomcat, VMware and SUSE Linux.
An administrator role is needed to install agents, configure monitored computers and create management packs.

Korišćene skraćenice :
RMS – root management server
MS – management server (poolable)
MP – measurement package
HSRP – hot standby router protocol
NIC – network interface card
KPI – key porfarmence indicator
IP SLA – Internet Protocol Service Level Agreemen, Cisco IOS feature for monitoring traffic in real time

Dobar link.
