Views and Monitors
The VMware.View.Monitoring MP contains the views and monitors that you can use with View in the Operations Manager console. Views Available for View lists the views that you can use to examine discovered View objects.
Displays a diagram of all discovered View Connection Server groups, members, roles, and components. You can obtain details about objects and their relationships by clicking the icons and the connectors.
You can find the Active Alerts, Group State, Groups, and Node State views under Monitoring\VMware View and the Connection Server Role Performance Data and Secure Gateway Role Performance Data views under Monitoring\VMware View\Performance in the Operations Manager console.
The VMware.View.Monitoring MP provides the following monitor types:
Performance monitor – collects system data and return this data to the SCOM performance database and data warehouse. You can examine the data graphically in the Connection Server Role Performance Data and Secure Gateway Role Performance Data views. See Performance Data Collection Settings and Display Performance Data.
Service component monitors – collect information about the state of the View component services. If a monitored service is not running, SCOM sets its state to error and raises an alert. If a component is in the error state, the affected View Connection Server group and its members also enter the error state. See Display Information About an Alert, Restart a Service, and Close Alerts.
View Service Component Monitors for a View Connection Server instance shows the service component monitors that are provided for a View Connection Server instance.
View Service Component Monitors for a Security Server shows the service component monitors that are provided for a security server.
Domain connectivity monitor – verifies that a Connection Server can bind to all the domains of which it is a member. The monitor queries the status of the Web component on a Connection Server every 3 minutes. If a Connection Server cannot bind to a domain, SCOM sets its state to error and raises an alert. See Display Information About an Alert, Exclude a Domain from Connectivity Monitoring, and Close Alerts.
Event database connectivity monitor – checks that the event database is configured and that events are writable to the database. The monitor queries the Web component every 3 minutes for this information and raises an alert if the event database is not connected.
Virtual Center (vCenter) connectivity monitor – checks that a View Connection Server instance can connect to the configured vCenter servers. The monitor queries the Web component every 3 minutes for this information and raises an alert if a vCenter server is not available.
Performance Data Collection Settings
To save storage space, the System.Performance.OptimizedDataProvider module is configured to store performance data in the SCOM database when the value of a sampled item has changed by more than a specified tolerance. For more information, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee809318.aspx.
Performance Data Collection Settings shows the performance data collection settings for the data sets.
