UIM Lync/Skype for business Probe Dashboards

    Hi All

     

    We are testing the UIM Lync/Skype for business Probe

    And we are looking for the best way to show how well a deployment is performing via a dashboard, what are the best metrics to use for a Dashboard?

     

    It would be great to learn how other people are represetning this, I'd welcome anyone to share their dashboards.

     

    Is there currently a place where we can share our dashboards in general for other probes?

     

    Thanks

    Take a look at the Microsoft KHI reference for Skype: Download Key Health Indicators for Lync Server 2013 and Skype for Business Server 2015 from Official Microsoft Download … 

     

    Canned dashboard leaves something to be desired but using the KHI references can create customized dashboard according to Microsoft best practices. lync_monitor (should be renamed to skype_for_business for 2013 / 2015) v3.0+ contains alignment to the KHI objects defined by Microsoft. My organization spent several months working with development to uplift the probe to align alarm values and improve the functionality of the probe as prior versions did not appropriately monitor Skype for Business 2013. Other improvements include dynamic detection of Skype databases which may not always be the default naming but that as well is too wide open and detects all DB's on particular system. Development could not get the Skype cmdlet of "test-csdatabase" operational to only pull back specific DB objects in use by Skype.
