Quae Nocent Docent, is named after the daily experiences of a group of friends. Managing today distributed systems with today tools in an effective way is like the quest for the Holy Grail. You can get close but it’s still one step beyond. We started back in 1995 with SMS 1.2 and travelled the perilous way up to System Center.  With this blog we’d like to share our injuries, scars and when possible cures with the broad Microsoft System Center Community and beyond. The primary focus of this blog has used to be OpsMgr, but we are now in the CloudOS era, so we’re going to post on everything related to hybrid clouds. We hope our experiences will save you some time and ease your efforts.

Btw we do management for passion (and for living) in Progel spa.

    Hi Daniele,

    I found your KEMP management pack here https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Kemp-LoadMaster-Managment-f8f4d080#content in my search to monitor the throughput of specific virtual services.
    Unfortunately I’m having some problems installing the MP. Somehow I have been unable to find the correct file to select for the import.
    Can you tell me how to install the MP?

    Hi Daniele, I also need to borrow your expertise :( I have the QND Hyper-V Management Packs imported into my SCOM environment (2012 R2 UR6). I see a rule called “Hyper-V 2012 R2 – Total CPU Usage” which targets “Server running Hyper-V 2012 R2”. I override this into my custom MP. However, when making a performance view dashboard, I don’t see this counter? The group Server running Hyper-V also contains my Hyper-V 2012 R2 Server. What gives?

      the rule is enabled by default so you don’t need to override anything to make it work. You can cehck the presence of the per counter in monitoring conole “Microsoft Windows Hyper-V\Hyper-V 2012 R2 Host Health Dashboard” Right click on a host and choose Performance, there you’ll find “Hyper-V Hypervisor Logical Processor\% Total Run Time\_Total”

    Hi Daniele,
    Hope things are well in your parts. Was wondering if you had any thoughts on an issues I posted here http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/systemcenter/en-US/1aff2519-ef1a-49ba-9dad-82f1c16f9d44/dhcp-2012-mp-and-monitoring-the-number-available-addresses-in-a-scope?forum=operationsmanagermgmtpacks
    Haven’t been getting much feedback. Looking at the configuration of this monitor it appears to be looking for a counter called ”ipv4scope-percentageavailable”, however when I get on my dhcp server and open up perfmon I don’t see this counter. Any ideas what my problem might be? Is this a bug in this mp in that it is looking for a counter that does not exist? Not sure if you have the DHCP 2012 mp implemented and are having the same issue.
    Many thanks,

      Hi Ernie,
      I know I should monitor the forums but I’m really out of time. I can blog or I can answer on formus, I cannot do both. :-)
      I will take a look at your question today, thanks for asking.

      – Daniele
