Enabling LDAP Bind Performance Data Collection

Updated: June 21, 2010

You need to enable the LDAP Bind Performance Data Collection rule so that you can collect performance data about the amount of time necessary to perform a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) bind operation to an AD LDS instance.

Configuration

You should create a specific group in Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 to use for monitoring replication. Add to that group only a select number of computers that you want to monitor. To learn about creating groups in Operations Manager 2007, see Creating and Managing Groups (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=166047).

CautionCaution
Do not enable client monitoring on all your member servers or desktop client computers running Windows. If you have too many clients running transactions only for the sake of monitoring, you can degrade the performance of your Active Directory deployment.

To perform the procedures in this section, you must be a member of the Operations Manager Administrators group in the Operations console. For more information, see Account Information for Operations Manager 2007 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=165736).

To add a computer to the AD LDS client perspective monitor

  1. On your management server, open the Operations Console, and then click Authoring.

  2. In the navigation pane, select Monitors in the Management Pack Objects group.

  3. In the Monitors pane on the right, type client perspective in the Look for text box, and then click Find Now.

  4. In the Results window, click Entity Health in Client Perspective, right-click Overrides, click Override the Monitor, and then click For a group.

    noteNote
    If you do not see the rule, confirm that your scope is set to include Lightweight Directory Service Client Perspective Discovery by clicking Scope in the Operations Console toolbar.

  5. In the Override Properties dialog box, ensure that the Override box that corresponds to Enabled in the Parameter Name column is selected, change Override Value to True, and then click OK.
