Kemp LoadMaster Monitoring Management Pack (Community MP)

Recently I was looking how to monitor Kemp LoadMaster devices with SCOM. I was able to discover them trough SCOM as Network Devices but that was the only thing and it was not enough. Fortunately fellow MVP Daniele Grandini decided to help me and develop Kemp LoadMaster Management Pack. He was the main driver for this MP to exists as he was the main developer and I’ve took the task of testing it and fixing some small bugs that we’ve encountered. This is initial version of the MP and contains some know issues some of them are due to kemp loadmaster others are internal for the MP. Consider this version somehow as beta as we have some plans to re-write the MP in the future if we can. You will find the MP here along with some documentation. You can log any feedback you have on the Codeplex page.

Cluster disk monitoring for the latest Windows OS MP

Daniele Grandini a well known MVP has made a management pack that extends the monitoring of Cluster Disks for the latest Windows OS management pack. As you know the latest Windows OS MP contains a lot of changes of how logical disks are monitored in SCOM. You can read about all changes in Kevin’s blog. As these changes were introduced there were missing some performance counters for Cluster Disks and CSV. Daniele took the challenge to add these counters for Cluster Disk by creating an management pack. You can read about this solution and download the management pack on his blog.

Thank you Daniele for sharing this solution with the community.
