Does there exist som kinda SCUM managmentpack for SNOW Licens Manager. I would like to be able to monitor our Snow server.
there is not really a SCOM management pack for Snow available for monitoring purposes.But you are still able to add Snow Services to your monitoring system, this way you will still receive alerting if they are down, or alerts for peaking resources for example. If am not wrong SCOM has default templates in order to configure application services etc.
Please find below a sample list of default Snow Services.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for helping me.I will try with the SCOM default template.
No problem Yngve, you're welcome
At some of our customers, we observed that occassionally Snow Inventory stopped working, but the Windows services continued to work. In dialogue with Snow support, we came up with monitoring the dates in Inventory: select top 1 LastUpdate from SNOWDB.dbo.Client order by LastUpdate desc
Or in SLM: select top 1 LastScanDate from SnowLicenseManager.dbo.tblComputer order by LastScanDate desc. If this exceeds a "large" number of computers, an alarm is triggered. As "large" a value of at least 20% of the total estate was chosen.
We did this in SI 3.7 and SLM 7.x, but I guess that the table names has changed since.
What would be the proper table names in SI 5.x and SLM 8?
Is there a "best practice Snow monitoring" document somewhere? If not, is perhaps something that you would like to create ... ?
This is exactly what I have been looking for. "Best practice Snow monitoring" or something similar would be very useful.
Thanks for your feedback, in License Manager the fields are still the same, for Snow Inventory version 5, i have described the fields below.
SnowInventory (SI 5 DB)"LastUpdate" from "inv.DataClient"
Snow License Manager"LastScanDatie" from "tbl.Computer"
Best Practice for Monitoring is a great idea, i will contact our internal teams and see the possibilities.
