  • Hi,

    As every environment is different, and each organisation have different needs/requirements it's not that easy to say what "should be monitored".

    You can however find a list of "Key Monitoring Scenarios" in the SharePoint management pack guide (system_center_monitoring_pack_guide_for_microsoft_sharepoint_2016.docx), this should give you a good idea.

    I would also suggest you ask your SharePoint team or the team responsible for your SharePoint environment, what they consider important in your environment and what they think should be monitored.

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • If you decide to monitor SP, you will need to monitor SQL hosting SP dbs.  DBA's will argue against this, but trust me, you want to monitor them and the MP will work better if you do.

    The guides for SP 2013 and 2016 have bugs, which I don't think have been updated, in regards to min permissions to monitor farms.

    The configuration of the MP can be problematic, but Kevin Holman has a nice blog post on how to best attack it.

    Goodluck, and keep in mind the MP is noisy, so you should be comfortable with understanding how to create and implement an override management pack for this beast of an MP.

  •  Hi,

    When we import the MP, SharePoint 2016 Object Discoveries, and it start monitoring. We can see the details under “Viewing Management Pack Object Discoveries in the Authoring Pane” and “Monitors” in the pdf in the following link, disscuss with your sharepoint team to see which they care about, keep them, overrride the rules or monitors that are not important in our environment:

    In addition, we can plan for monitoring in SharePoint Server according to our environment. The following link for the reference:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/administration/monitoring-planning


    Hope it can help.

    Best regards.
    Crystal
