Management Pack Components

Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005 provides comprehensive event management, monitoring and alerting, reporting, and trend analysis. MOM can consolidate events and determine which events are of critical importance to an administrator. You can configure MOM to respond to events by contacting an administrator, or by resolving the event automatically, based on criteria that you specify. This chapter details the components of a Management Pack, and how you can use them as part of your Management Pack design.

This chapter also contains technical details and best practices for Management Pack development.
