SCOM Custom Performance Collection

May 7, 2008 at 6:08 pm (SCOM) (, , )

I’ve spent five days struggling with this, but I finally have a custom performance collection up and running. The documentation available for Operations Manager 2007 (SCOM), especially for customization, especially for databases, is weak, and that’s being kind. However, there are some guys working hard out there to make a difference. If you need help, the System Center Forum is the place to go. In particular, this little ditty on using property bag objects finally cracked the code for me. The good news, I’m going to write this up in an article for Steve over at SQL Server Central. The better news, I can finally report progress in my daily stand-ups. Sheesh!

SCOM VBScript Testing: The Answer

May 6, 2008 at 11:18 am (SCOM) (, , , )

It took a while, but I finally tracked down the information I needed. SCOM has an SDK. In the SDK is a nice little page showing how to test & debug scripts. One of the links on that page leads out here to a great article on the VBScript debugger. That’s what I needed (along with the DLL’s to register). Anyway, I’ve almost got my first monitoring script up & running. I’ll post it on here once I do.

SCOM VBScript Testing

Surely there’s an enterprising young developer (I’m out on two of those counts) who has written a testing engine to validate VBScripts for SCOM prior to implementing them. Where are you? I need you!
