Monitoring Integration between Operations Manager and TFS in System Center 2012 SP1

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 SP1 - Operations Manager

Synchronization between Operations Manager and Team Foundation Server (TFS) makes efficient communication possible between information technology (IT) operations and developers. A healthy TFS environment is essential for all development processes. Depending on your environment, you can import TFS monitoring and management packs that give you real-time visibility into the health of the TFS developer environment.

The TFS Work Item Synchronization management pack synchronizes Operations Manager alerts and TFS work items. Additionally, it monitors the synchronization infrastructure, and it generates alerts when synchronization fails. However, to monitor the complete TFS infrastructure, you need additional monitoring packs that alert you about a wide range of problems with TFS components. When you import the TFS Work Item Synchronization management pack, it is a best practice to also import and configure these monitoring packs. Together, they help you make sure that you are monitoring the complete health of the developer TFS environment.
