SCOM: Application Monitoring – Code Level Monitoring

Holla,

I’m so inspired with SCOM’s capability. SCOM can monitor your Datacenter from Temperature, Rack Doors, Humidity up to code-level monitoring.

Imagine with me a traditional scenario where you have a Server Operator, Network Operator and Developer. When an application fails, traditionally the 3 stooges above will blame one another because no one actually knows the root cause of the failure.

Now with SCOM, you will be able to pinpoint the exact root cause and remediate it without long downtime and countless blame assigning meetings.

In 2010, Microsoft made a purchase on a product that does code-level monitoring on .Net Application (AVIcode). Today, AVIcode is integrated natively in SCOM 2012 and is able to provide you with code-level diagnostic with great reporting tools via Out of the Box App Advisor.

App Advisor provides different reports from Client-Side Reporting to Server Analysis Reporting. You can view a short video of AppAdvisor in action here or you can download for a clearer view here http://sdrv.ms/U60rnc

So, it looks great with .Net through AVIcode. What about Java Application Servers?

Well for that, we do have excellent MP as well. The table below summarizes what SCOM can monitor on which OS Layer. * The table below is extracted from http://blogs.technet.com/b/random_happy_dev_thoughts/archive/2012/04/18/system-center-operations-manager-scom-2012-released.aspx

Here’s a video that explains Application Monitoring very well with demo as well http://aka.ms/qxnj12 In short, this video will share about how SCOM 2012 can monitor from network and deep line-of-business application such as .Net and Java

Beside the video link above, I would like to share with you 2 other PowerPoint Slides for your consumption.
