Key monitoring scenarios

 

Applies to: Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint

Topic Last Modified: 2010-05-17

The Microsoft Forefront Server Protection Management Pack for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 (Operations Manager 2007) proactively monitors the "health" of your Forefront agent-managed systems by looking at events. Events are logged when transitions occur from one state to another. Health is indicated by a color code:

  • Green (healthy) – everything is functioning properly and performing well. Green events do not trigger alerts. The symbol is a green check mark within a circle.

  • Yellow (warning) – performance is poor or a problem is impairing non-critical functionality. Yellow events trigger warning alerts. The symbol is a "!" within a yellow triangle.

  • Red (unhealthy) – critical functionality has been lost. Red events trigger error alerts. The symbol is a white "x" within a red circle.

These are the various problem types that the Microsoft Forefront Server Protection Management Pack tracks. For more information about monitored events, see Appendix: Monitors and overrides for management packs.
