About the Cisco UCS Management Pack

Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) is a cross-platform data center management server for operating systems and hypervisors. SCOM utilizes a single interface that shows state, health, and performance information of computer systems. It also provides alerts generated according to availability, performance, configuration, or identified security risks.

A management pack is a definition file that contains predefined monitoring settings that enable an agent to monitor a specific service or application in Operations Manager. These predefined settings include discovery information that allows Operations Manager to automatically detect and begin monitoring services and applications. It also consists of a knowledge base that contains error and troubleshooting information, alerts, and reports to help you correct the problems detected in the environment.

The Cisco UCS Management Pack for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager provides visibility into the health, performance, and availability of a Cisco UCS domain through a single, familiar, and easy-to-use interface. The management pack contains rules which monitor, for example, chassis, blade servers, rack servers, and service profiles across multiple Cisco UCS domains.
