This is part of the Microsoft Active Directory Management Pack Technical Reference guide

No single planning, monitoring, or maintenance product can cover all facets of information technology (IT) management. Active Directory Management Pack provides a strong monitoring complement to other aspects of Active Directory management, such as directory data health, capacity planning, and change and configuration management (CCM). These additional Active Directory management considerations are explained in the following sections.

Data Health

Active Directory Management Pack is designed to help you maintain the health of your Active Directory directory service. Maintaining the health of directory data presents a different kind of problem — one that varies according to your particular organization, the type of data that you store in Active Directory, and how you go about entering and modifying data in Active Directory. For more information about maintaining Active Directory data, see the “Active Directory Operations Guide” on the Microsoft Web site at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=17282.

Capacity Planning

With Active Directory Management Pack, you can collect reporting information that can help you make capacity planning decisions. However, ADMP by itself does not provide any capacity planning feedback based on the data that it gathers. To put ADMP to work in your capacity planning efforts, use ADMP reporting data, along with one of the many published Microsoft Active Directory capacity planning white papers and Resource Kit chapters, including:

Change and Configuration Management

To complement Active Directory Management Pack monitoring, you can use Microsoft® Systems Management Server 2.0 for CCM. For more information about Systems Management Server 2.0, see “Microsoft Systems Management Server” on the Microsoft Web site at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=299.
