6 System Center Operations Manager
Currently in its 4th release of the product Microsoft Operations Manager 2000 Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005 System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) 2007 System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) 2007 R2 vNext Used for Proactive and Reactive Monitoring Leverages WMI to query the state of Applications Also can take advantage of Event Viewer(s) SCOM knows what to monitor based upon Management Packs Part of the System Center Family System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) System Center Service Manager (SCSM) System Centre Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM)

7 SCOM Components

8 SCOM Coverage SCOM Coverage:
Applications: BizTalk, Exchange, SQL Server, Custom Application Hosts: Internet Information Services (IIS) Network/OS: Switches, Routers, Firewalls, Windows Server Hardware: IBM, HP, Dell

9 Management Packs Management Packs provide SCOM with instructions on how to monitor a particular system or application Microsoft provides many Management Packs out of the box at no charge: Exchange SQL Server Windows Operating System Dynamics SharePoint BizTalk AppFabric 3rd party Management Packs available Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) Oracle Apache

10 What’s New in BizTalk 2010 Management Pack
Improved Performance Fewer round trips to SCOM Database for minor changes to BizTalk artifacts Optimized discovery of artifacts across multiple machines Clustering Issue Improved Diagnostic Support More detailed information includes in Events Application vs Infrastructure Views

11 Demo SCOM Console Monitoring Authoring Administration My Workspace
Active Alerts Windows Computers Distributed Application Authoring Monitors Rules Administration Management Packs Discovery My Workspace Custom Views specific to “your world” Monitoring Active Alerts Windows Computers Distributed Application Authoring Monitors Rules Administration Management Packs Discovery My Workspace Custom Views specific to “your world”

12 Why using SCOM is important
Want visibility into the health and status of your environment Want Operations personnel to be productive Prevent F5 key from wearing out Know when problems exist before your customers/clients notice Resolve small problems before they become large Example: Service Level Agreements – Energize Request Eliminate the guess work associated with root cause identification and triage Example: ERP Outage

13 Using SCOM in the Real World
Just because things shouldn’t fail, doesn’t mean that they won’t

14 Using SCOM in the real world
Utility Distribution Company 24/7 Contact Centre and Dispatch Business Units BizTalk used to exchange data related to: Meter consumption and Billing Customer Energize and De-energize requests Update Customer Information from Retailers Work Order Management Power Outage Trouble Tickets Automated Metering installations and activations Employee and Vehicle timesheets Field Incident Reporting Incidents Locate Screening Ticket Management Also use SCOM for monitoring: Exchange SharePoint SQL Server Windows Operating Systems Custom Alerts

15 Using SCOM in the real world
Middleware team provides day time and after hours call out support Mixture of Developers and Ops employees Warnings/Errors are Sent to distribution group Example: Failed Message in Receive Pipeline Critical Errors are sent to On Call Person via SMS Example: Host Instances going offline

27 Break – Light Humour After the North American Beer Festival, all the brewery presidents decided to go out for a beer. The guy from Corona sits down and says, "Hey Senor, would like the world's best beer, a Corona." The bartender dusts off a bottle from the shelf and gives it to him. The guy from Budweiser says, "I'd like the best beer in the world, give me 'The King Of Beers', a Budweiser." The bartender gives him one. The guy from Coors says, "I'd like the only beer made with Rocky Mountain spring water, give me a Coors." He gets it. The guy from Molson sits down and says, "Give me a Coke." The bartender is a little taken aback, but gives him what he ordered. The other brewery presidents look over at him and ask, "Why aren't you drinking a Molson's?" The Molson president replies, "Well, I figured if you guys aren't drinking beer, neither would I."

28 Agenda – Part 2 Demos SCOM Performance Footprint Challenges
Receive Location Shutdown SCOM as a knowledge base Host Instance Shutdown Web Console Pipeline Error Custom Errors Maintenance Mode SCOM Performance Footprint Challenges Lessons Learned

29 SCOM Performance Footprint
During Installation Processor 29-37% Disk 18-19 additional pages per second Disk Storage 154 mb Network 11mb sent to the system Memory 22mb required during install Post Installation (run time) Processor 3-4% Disk .5 additional pages per second Disk Storage 156 mb data Network .5-.6 mb/minute Memory 11mb required

30 Challenges BizTalk Developers don’t understand SCOM and SCOM administrators don’t understand BizTalk Overload Tune SCOM, don’t create Outlook Rules Issues Clustered Host Instances (BizTalk 2006/2009) Disabled Host Instances Using SCOM Alerts for Business Purposes ESB Exception Management Portal is a better option Planned Maintenance Use Maintenance Mode Operations Team not resolving Alerts Don’t rely strictly on , use the Console Gaps between BizTalk Admin Console and SCOM Console

31 Lessons Learned Commitment to the SCOM platform and process is required in order to be successful Tune, tune and re-tune your solutions until you have right level of notifications Leverage the Management console to build your Knowledge base and resolution of alerts. Leverage Maintenance Mode during planned outages to prevent unnecessary alerts during planned outages.
