Working with views

 

Topic Last Modified: 2010-05-14

The Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 (Operations Manager 2007 provides a set of views that are accessible through the Monitoring space of the Operations Manager 2007 Operations Console. Views separate and filter the alert, task status, state, and performance data received from Operations Manager 2007 agents into a relational hierarchy.

There are both common views (views common to all Forefront products) and views for Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server (FPE).

There are several view types, each displaying a different aspect of monitoring data and each with a different icon. These are the various types of views:

  • Alert View
    Displays alerts that meet your specific criteria, such as alert severity, resolution state, or alerts that are assigned to you.

  • State View
    Displays relationships between features, computers, and computer groups

  • Performance View
    Customizes how you want to view performance data collected from performance objects and counters. This includes the ability to view historical and current operational data together.

  • Task Status View
    Displays tasks that meet criteria specified in the properties, such as only those tasks that apply to certain object types.

  • Web Page View
    Displays a Web page in a separate window in the Operations Console.

  • Dashboard View
    Allows you to arrange and view any data that Operations Manager 2007 is gathering, such as designing a view that shows two different view types side by side in one window.

This is a reference to each of the Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server (FPE) views included in the Microsoft Forefront Server Protection Management Pack for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 (Operations Manager 2007).

Note that only the lowest level folders view monitored items. For more information about views, see Working with views. For more information about the views hierarchy, see "About the folder structure" in Installing the management pack.

These views are common to FPE and FPSP (Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint) and are not specific to servers running a particular Forefront product. They contain summaries of all the Forefront Protection Suite (FPS) managed servers.

All of these views are contained within the structure of the top level folder called Microsoft Forefront Server Protection 2010 (Microsoft.ForefrontServer.Library.Folder)
