Citrix SCOM Management Pack 2.25 for XenServer

May 21, 2017

Citrix SCOM Management Pack for XenServer is an availability and performance management solution that extends end-to-end service monitoring capabilities of Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) to include the Citrix XenServer (XenServer) infrastructure. It fully integrates topology, health, and performance data into SCOM and provides centralized monitoring.

It covers the following key scenarios:

  • Are all XenServer instances running?
  • Are all virtual machines powered on?
  • Are there any events that indicate a problem with XenServer or a particular virtual machine?
  • Have any performance thresholds been violated?

Citrix SCOM Management Pack for XenServer components can help you detect and respond to critical events in your XenServer virtual infrastructure. Frequently, timely alerts help prevent XenServer outages and assure high availability of the XenServer virtual infrastructure.

Citrix SCOM Management Pack for XenServer provides a large number of performance collection rules which collect vital XenServer metrics to the SCOM data warehouse. Predefined reports allow you to use this data to review and analyze performance history and to predict trends.
