Betrifft: Internet Security and Acceleration Server (ISA), Operations Manager 2007, Operations Manager 2007 R2

The following table lists the key monitoring scenarios included in the ISA Server 2006 Management Pack:


Scenario Description

ISA Server 2006 component monitoring

The following types of monitoring will be performed on ISA Server 2006 components:

  • Event-based monitoring

  • Performance threshold monitoring

  • Service monitoring

  • Performance collection

ISA connectivity monitoring

This scenario enables monitoring of the ISA Server computer’s connectivity to the services it is publishing, the Internet and to infrastructure services (such as authentication and name resolution).

End-to-end service monitoring

The sole purpose of ISA Server 2006 is to facilitate secure connectivity between two endpoints. For this connectivity to be successful, all components in the chain—the client, the server, the ISA Server computer (or array), all interconnecting network devices (switches, routers, and so forth) and transmission media (cables, WAN circuits, and so forth)—must be operational.

Best practices analysis

The ISA Server 2006 Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) is a diagnostic tool that automatically performs specific tests on configuration data collected on the local ISA Server computer.
