This is a great list, but it looks a bit dated. Is there a more up to date list?
Because your activities stretch across a few solutions in the product set, you will have to look at documentation pertaining to Network Discovery first. Then read through chapter 4 and pages 94-95 in the following guide. Monitor Solution can seem a bit intimidating, but I assure you, once you get the concepts of Metrics, Rules, Policies, applicability and sites, it will make complete sense. The remaining challenges exist across any vendor's monitoring product; i.e. understanding SNMP and OIDs and MIBs, WMI calls, Event Log checks, Compound metrics/mathematics etc...
Appreciated your help. May i know is there any video or readup on this?
Yes, you can absolutely perform SNMP GETs using an agentless SNMP metric. You will need to setup your connection profile with the correct read community string, perform a network discovery using this connection profile and create a monitoring policy, targeting your desired devices. Within that policy, you will have your Rule that will leverage your SNMP metric. Within that metric, you will simply define the OID of the metric you wish to collect from your devices and a poling interval. Bear one thing in mind though, each network device will consume an SMS license when performing GETs, trap receiving does not; this can be an expensive solution depending on the number of network devices you wish to monitor.
Are we able to monitor network devices such as cisco switches/routers?I am looking at ICMP ping and some performance parameter such as CPU/Memory. From the ciscoworks policy, it doesn't seems to have any such parameter. Are we able to poll these information via SNMP poll? Or we only able to depend on SNMP Traps to provide us such information?
Hello Daniel, have you tried the MS Cluster Server Monitor Pack from Joseph Carson? If you have any problems, post here and I will try to answer any questions.
Is there any monitor pack for Microsoft Cluster Services? I can´t seem to get the monitoring of clustered servers working.
