SharePoint Monitoring Toolkit Solution Accelerator for Operations Manager 2007 released

The first Solution Accelerator for Operations Manager 2007 (and System Center Essentials 2007) has released, the SharePoint Monitoring Toolkit. The download, which takes the form of two MP's (one for SharePoint Services 3.0 and one for Office SharePoint Server 2007) can be downloaded here

These MP's are different to those included with the OpsMgr product for SharePoint monitoring, now containing more rules, new and improved reports (see details below or the download page). Each MP includes a comprehensive MP Guide.


The SharePoint Monitoring Toolkit helps you manage Microsoft® SharePoint® environments of all sizes with two new management packs for System Center Operations Manager 2007:

  • Windows® SharePoint Services 3.0 Management Pack

  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Management Pack

These packs monitor the health state of the components in your SharePoint environment that affect performance and availability. When there is an issue that may cause service or performance degradation, Operations Manager 2007 uses the management packs to detect the issue, alert you to its existence, and facilitate diagnosis and corrective actions.
The management packs monitor:

  • Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 related services (Timer, Tracing and Search)

  • Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 related Events

  • Web server applications such as Internet Information Services (IIS)

  • IIS-related Events

  • Microsoft SQL Server® database-related events

  • WSS Server performance

The SharePoint Monitoring Toolkit Management Packs have been rewritten from the ground up to take advantage of the latest features of System Center Operations Manager 2007. Major improvements from previous packs include:

  • Extended rules

  • New and improved reports

  • Additional actions

  • New views

  • Elimination of backward compatibility dependencies

  • Increased reliability

  • Noise reduction through tuning and event suppression

  • Thoroughly tested compatibility of management packs with:

    • System Center Operations Manager 2007

    • System Center Essentials

    • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 SP1

System Requirements

  • Supported Operating Systems: Windows Server 2003; Windows Vista; Windows XP
