Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Operations Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Operations Manager

To view overall web application health

  1. To get a view of the general health of each application you are monitoring, in the Operations Manager console, in the navigation pane, click the Monitoring button, and then click Application Monitoring.

  2. Click Web Application Availability Monitoring, and then click Web Applications State. This is the best view to see the overall health of each application.

    The alert state for each application is displayed according to the alert configurations used when you set up the tests:

    • Green=Healthy

    • Yellow=Error

    • Red=Warning

  3. To see details about a particular application, double-click the test to open the Health Explorer.

    The Health Explorer allows you to see the health states for each criterion, so you can pinpoint what caused the application to show an error or warning.

To view alerts and alert details

  1. To see active alerts for the applications you are monitoring, in the Operations Manager console, in the navigation pane, click the Monitoring button, and then click Application Monitoring.

  3. To see alert details, click the alert to see the Alert Details pane.

  4. To see more details about an alert, double-click the alert to open the Alert Properties page.

    On the Alert Properties page General tab, you can reassign the alert, see the alert description, and change the alert status to New or, if you have resolved the issue, Closed. Use the Previous and Next buttons to scroll through the alerts for easy review. When you are finished viewing or changing properties, click OK to save your changes.

    A test is one URL and one location.

    The Health Explorer allows you to see the health states for each criterion, so you can see in detail what caused the test to show an error or warning.
