Monitoring your Exchange environment using SCOM combined with GSX Monitor & Analyzer

GSX understands the importance of seamless integration with SCOM. GSX Management Pack enables communication between GSX Monitor & Analyzer and SCOM.

SNMP makes this communication possible. This protocol is widely used by most of the global monitoring solutions, like SCOM.

SCOM alerts configuration

Configuring the integration between SCOM and GSX Monitor is easy.
You just have to state in SCOM (within "Computer and devices to manage settings" sections) new device management and then import the management pack in the administration tab.

Once configured, SCOM is able to collect the SNMP Traps in the alerting view.

GSX enables you to set alerts per profile for each type of event occuring in your environment. For each profile you can set an alert basis and a separate profile if you want to escalate it to SCOM.

GSX alert system

All alerts can be centralized on a global tool or they can be directed to a specific profile via GSX Monitor. 

SCOM AlertingSystem

Each time an alert threshold is reached, whether up or down, an alert profile executes according to its settings.

Alerts can be sent by mail (unique address or spreading list), pagers, workstation program, sound, pop up, sms, SNMP Trap alert to an operations manager like SCOM.

Then set up the 3 alerts options available:

  1. Set the severity of the alert for categorization
  2. Set a reminder until an issue is resolved
  3. Configure an escalation

GSX Monitor offers a simple and efficient system to distribute the appropriate alert to the appropriate team.
