Update Release VMware Management Pack V 1.3.10.0

Update Release VMware Management Pack V 1.3.10.0

We’re happy to announce a new update release of our VMware Management Pack for SCOM 2012/2016.

  • The Management Pack has an even lower systems footprint. We have decoupled the VMware collector from SCOM resulting in far better SCOM stability.
  • All alerts generated in vCenter will automatically be picked up by SCOM and a corresponding SCOM alert will be generated. Authoring templates are no longer needed.

  • Assign licenses to hosts (whitelisting) using the VMware administration dashboard. 

  • Data is cached and only sent to SCOM when there is a state change, additionally lowering the footprint of the systems. 

Note: Please be sure .NET 4.5 or higher is installed on the MS server.

This latest release is upgradable starting from V1.3.0.0 or later.

The update is downloadable from the customer download area.

For more additions, changes, and fixes please refer to release notes.

When?

Wednesday 10th of October 2018, Visual Arena, Lindholmen, Gothenburg

This year’s theme

Hybrid Monitoring

As more and more people buy cloud services, we have focused on how to monitor hybrid environments with products such as SCOM and Azure prior to this year’s event. Therefore, we have invited Thomas Maurer (MVP) and Marcel Zehner (MVP), two of Microsoft’s “Most Valuable Professionals” and Martin Ehrnst (Intility), representing a major host retailer. All three will be present as a speaker will be available for you to share their experiences during the event.

For those who have not been able to participate in the SCOM-Day event of the previous year, now have the opportunity to join! It’s the ideal forum for anyone working in IT Operations at all levels. The idea is to network and get tips from colleagues in the industry, to work together towards a more modern and more efficient, innovative IT operation. In the previous years, organizations from all sorts of industries have participated and we hope that you will also appear this year.

The event is free of charge and the day is packed with valuable tips from well-known speakers in the area, along with the latest and hottest news from vendors.

Following feedback from our participants in previous years, we have chosen to cut the number of sponsors by half for the 2018 event and invite external speakers. We constantly want to improve the quality of the event to provide you with the best possible experience.

What’s New With The Latest EZalert Update by OpsLogix?

What’s New With The Latest EZalert Update by OpsLogix?

OpsLogix is happy to announce the latest update of the EZalert solution, version 2. It does a lot more than just closing alerts, in comparison to the first release of the solution.

So What’s New With EZalert?

EZalert is a tool that uses machine learning to help you manage your SCOM environment in a more efficient and effective way, it helps you filter out noisy alerts and lower the total cost of ownership.

When starting out with EZalert, you will have to start “training” EZalert to handle new incoming alerts. By setting the resolution state on new incoming alerts EZalert “learns” what resolution state you would like to set for the same or similar alerts when a new alert is generated.

Eventually, with enough training, EZalert will start predicting with an increasingly higher accuracy what resolution state to set for an alert. When you are confident that EZalert predicts the resolution state for incoming alerts accurately, you can turn on auto apply and EZalert will automatically apply the predicted resolution state to the new incoming alerts in real-time. Not only is it possible to let EZalert set the resolution state on new incoming alerts, but you can also attach a PowerShell script (and use properties of the alert as parameters) to a specific resolution state as an action.

 

Watch The Demo Here

QuickStart Guide

Mandatory
  1.  Configure your resolution states based on where your alerts should be transferred to. This could be different groups within your IT-organization that should work with the alerts.
  2. Train your model with all incoming alerts to match your desired resolution state. Consider closing alerts (255) that you might use for reporting purpose that doesn’t require immediate attention to the cleanup noise.
  3. Don’t train simple alerts with too many entries when the confidence level is high. This will only slow down the training and consume more memory.
  4. Enable auto-apply. We recommend a confidence level above 85% in order to get good results. This will also ensure that alerts that don’t match won’t be forwarded to a trained resolution state.
  5. Use the low confidence filter to find the alerts that need more training and train them until they reach the configured confidence level.
Optional
  1. Pre-actions to set Custom fields for example Management Pack, Operated By – used by the machine learning algorithm.
  2. Post actions Custom fields for a statistical purpose on what resolution state was applied.

We were Inspired! A look back at Microsoft Inspire 2018

Now that the holiday season is coming to an end, the OpsLogix team is slowly but surely returning after enjoying their hard earned vacations shortly following Microsoft Inspire in Las Vegas last month. We were proud and happy to present the newest update of our EZalert solution and inform our (future) customers about our plans for the upcoming release. In our latest update, we have basically turned EZalert, which was only a machine learning tool that could close new incoming alerts based on its training in System Center Operations Manager into a tool that also automatically sets resolution states. More information about the EZalert update will follow shortly.

The OpsLogix Oracle Managed Application Mentioned During Microsoft Build 2018

The OpsLogix Oracle Managed Application Mentioned During Microsoft Build 2018

During their Microsoft Build 2018 session Making production deployments safe and repeatable using declarative infrastructure and Azure Resource Manager, Vlad Joanovic, and Brendan Burns share best practices for using Azure Resource Manager (ARM) to optimize application deployment agility and ensure compliance across infrastructures. ARM enables you to repeatedly deploy your app and have confidence your resources are deployed in a consistent state.

You define the infrastructure and dependencies for your app in a single declarative template that is flexible enough to use for all of your environments such as test, staging or production. We’ll look at ways that you can create, share and publish both ARM templates, as well as Azure Managed Applications.

OpsLogix Oracle Managed Application

Azure Managed Applications build upon ARM templates to enable Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), and corporate central IT teams to deliver turnkey solutions through the Azure Marketplace or Service Catalog. These are self-contained and sealed to the consumer, allowing the provider to deliver a higher quality of service.

At the end of 2017, OpsLogix was a Microsoft key launch partners among Cisco and Xcalar on Managed Applications. At around 1:13:00 minutes into the session Vlad Joanovic mentions the OpsLogix Oracle Managed Application as part of his demo. We at OpsLogix highly appreciate this and would like to thank Vlad and Kristian Nese for this.
