If you’re the monitoring admin (which, let’s face it, if you’re reading this, you probably are), you might have a love hate relationship with SCOM. You love the wealth of data it collects – and that is where SCOM REALLY shines.
But that data isn’t useful if you can’t see the wood from the theoretical trees. You’re left drowning in alerts, unable to gain useful insights about how the infrastructure is performing. This is where SCOM needs a little helping hand.
Follow our 3 steps to eliminate noise, visualize data, and become a master of your monitoring universe with SquaredUp and Cookdown.
Love it, wish SCOM itself was as good at its job as SquaredUp.Andrew Parsons, ICT Infrastructure Officer, Dorset Council
This might seem obvious, but the 1st step is deciding that SCOM is the monitoring tool for you. This might be the case if:
Just be sure to download SCOM 2019. You can download the evaluation version here.
Trying to use SCOM to tune your alerts is like trying to code a whole new software platform. If you’ve got the time and patience to set it up, and then re-build it when you upgrade to SCOM 2019, then you’re a better person than we are. Good for you.
Or you could try an easier way. Easy Tune Pro, from our sister company, Cookdown, lets you tune a whole SCOM MP in a single click, eliminating noise so you can focus on just the critical alerts.
You’re monitoring your infrastructure with SCOM. Nice. You’ve tuned your alerts to perfection with Easy Tune Pro. Great! You’re on your way to becoming a master of your monitoring. The final step? Data driven insight.
SquaredUp dashboards take all of the information SCOM collects and delivers a live, actionable view of your data. Visualize, map and monitor your SCOM infrastructure to keep your systems healthy and your applications online.
