OpsLogix, a company long involved in developing management packs to improve the functionality of SCOM, have released an update to their VMware management pack. It is already available if you have a valid support contract.

Version 1.3.2.10 contains following changes or additions:

  • Added Virtual Machine Snapshot to count monitoring as running level and total count

  • Added the location path of the Host and Virtual Machine. For example: now you can see on which host a Virtual Machine is currently running.
  • Removed the overall status of a datacenter based on the VMware api. A rollup based on the availability status has been added.
  • Added availability, configuration, performance and security rollups for the datacenter.
  • Added VMware tools status monitoring.
  • Optimized the connections/session to the Vcenter or hosts to read out the monitoring data.
  • Updated the layout of the configuration dashboard.
  • Extra log features have been added to debug the management pack by using special registry keys.
