Monitoring Without Application Center Events and Performance Logging

This section describes how to use monitoring for your cluster without using Application Center Event and Performance Logging.

Because logging events and monitoring data consumes computer resources, you might want to install without Application Center Events and Performance Logging, which will create a slight performance gain compared to installing with this feature. Installing without Application Center Event and Performance Logging consumes less disk space, CPU resources, and memory. If you install Application Center without Application Center Events and Performance Logging, the options for logging still appear in the user interface, but they have no effect because this feature is not present. You will need to keep this in mind and ignore any logging settings.

The following table lists the features that are not available if logging is not installed.

Unavailable features

Workaround

Performance chart

Use the Windows 2000 Performance Monitor.

Events view

Use the Windows 2000 Event Viewer. A subset of Application Center events are written to this log.

Historical view

Use the Windows 2000 Event Viewer.

Health Monitor alerts

Use Health Monitor.

Archiving data

Unless you are providing your own logging functionality, archiving is not available.

Reporting

Unless you are providing your own logging functionality, reporting is not available.

You can use real-time monitoring, the Windows 2000 utilities, and WMI to monitor your cluster without using Application Center Events and Performance Logging.
