Available Monitor Types for View Objects

The VMware.View.Monitoring management pack provides the following monitor types.

Performance monitor

Collects system data and return this data to the SCOM performance database and data warehouse. You can examine the data graphically in the Connection Server Role Performance Data and Secure Gateway Role Performance Data views.

Service component monitors

Collect information about the state of the View component services. If a monitored service is not running, SCOM sets its state to error and raises an alert. If a component is in the error state, the affected View Connection Server group and its members also enter the error state.

Domain connectivity monitor

Verifies that a View Connection Server instance can bind to all the domains of which it is a member. The monitor queries the status of the Web component on a View Connection Server instance every three minutes. If a View Connection Server instance cannot bind to a domain, SCOM sets its state to error and raises an alert.

Event database connectivity monitor

Checks that the event database is configured and that events are writable to the database. The monitor queries the Web component every three minutes for this information and raises an alert if the event database is not connected.

Virtual Center (vCenter) connectivity monitor

Checks that a View Connection Server instance can connect to the configured vCenter Server instances. The monitor queries the Web component every three minutes for this information and raises an alert if a vCenter Server instance is not available.
