Just to let you know I revised the Kemp LoadMaster management pack for System Center Operations Manager 2012 R2.
The new version (184.108.40.206) implements the following:
- new repository on GitHub feel free to contribute
- now all the discovered entities report the Kemp LM device name to get rid of the way SCOM identifies network devices using the mac address
- added TPS performance collection, an important metric to measure the device usage. Both total and SSL TPS are collected, based on licensing the device has a maximum TPS limit
- added a property to identify the clustering role of every single node
- new SquaredUp dashboard
Due to the fact that now Kemp LM devices have a REST interface I anticipate this is going to be the last version of the SNMP based MP. Any new development (if there will be new developments) will be targeted to the new interface. Also I’m investigating what can be achieved in terms of OMS monitoring.
