Using the Network Dashboard Views in SCOM 2012


John Joyner introduces the four new dashboards that are part of the network monitoring engine for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2012.

A useful technology that is bundled with a default installation of Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) 2012 is the new Network Monitoring engine based on “Smarts” technology originally developed by EMC Corporation. SCOM 2012 will positively identify specific network devices, and can monitor hundreds of devices such as network switches and routers at the port level and correlate this information with server and application health models.

After SCOM 2012 has discovered the devices on your network(s), both the devices — and the interfaces of previously discovered Windows computers and other devices to those devices — are automatically monitored for performance, errors, and availability. This viewing of network device health, in the context of the computers being interconnected by the devices, is powerful and logical. The automatic nature by which only key interfaces are selected for monitoring is a clever approach to avoiding collecting too much interface performance data.
