System Center Operations Manager - How to tune and tame the beast


Published on

So you installed SCOM, imported the Management Packs and started monitoring. Now the real fun starts. How about the so famous 360 degree monitoring? Is it only marketing mumbo jumbo or not? How to get the most out of Distributed Applications? How about creating Classes for your specific monitoring needs? And do both – and more – without taking a deep dive into hard core Management Pack authoring? And when SCOM starts having issues, how to solve them? Where to start? In this session Marnix will show you how to get things done in a fast and easy manner. Also he’ll show you how to start troubleshooting in a consistent manner, pinpointing some common issues and how to solve them.
