Updated: January 15, 2013
Applies To: System Center 2012 - Operations Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Operations Manager
In System Center 2012 – Operations Manager, the Monitoring workspace is the primary workspace for operators. The Monitoring workspace is basically the same in both the Operations and Web consoles.
When you open the Monitoring workspace, you see an overview that summarizes the health of distributed applications and computers, as well as the objects that are in maintenance mode, as shown in the following image.
In the State and Alerts overview, click any of the numbers to see a detailed view. For example, if you click the number shown for Maintenance Mode, a state view of all computers in maintenance mode opens.
The health states that are summarized in the overview only tell you part of what is going on in your environment. You will also want to review the alerts that have been generated. In the navigation pane, click Active Alerts to see all alerts. For more information about dealing with alerts, see Managing Alerts.
There are number of views in the Monitoring workspace that allow you to view the status of your environment. For information on each view, see Standard Views in Operations Manager. You can change the display options of a view and save it as a personalized view. For more information, see How to Personalize a View in Operations Manager.
As you work with Operations Manager, you may discover that there are specific views that you frequently access. You can create a customized workspace that displays your favorite views and searches. For more information, see Using My Workspace in Operations Manager.
