Line of Business Application RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am planning to use distributed application designer approach(that has 3 or more apps)  that makes up for a specific APP LoB service MAP for a pilot project.

    I have seen templates such as Line of Business Web Application template and Blank template.

    Has anyone worked with developers that have further customized LoB monitoring into SCOM .

    Thanks,
    Arvind

    Sadly most of the customisation is dependant upon the application. There is much info out there on building monitoring such as creating monitors \ rules \ service monitoring \ process monitoring \ file and folder monitoring. At a more advanced level of authoring:

    To be honest, the OpsMgr part of this is the most straight forward part of the process. It is building the application on paper that is far more difficult.

    Good Luck

  • Hi Arvind

    What sort of customisation are you looking at? The customisation (in general) occurs via creating classes \ discoveries \ rules \ monitors rather than within the designer itself.

    The main effort with Distributed Applications is in the design phase ... what components make up the application? What classes already exist? What do you need to create? I'd try and be as specific as possible so rather than target a windows computer class, determine exactly which services \ processes \ files etc comprise the application. The designer itself is just where you add these objects in.

    Cheers

  • Thanks Graham.

    I have already requested application teams as they will have better idea for each component that makes up for the overall service .

    It appears to me the apps team have to develop or utilize existing classes as stated in your response .
    I was hoping for some reference or urls within the blog that may have similiar requests.
