With the release of Microsoft System Center Operation Manager (SCOM) 2007 Microsoft has created a powerful monitoring tool. The amount of information that is gathered and alerted on, is staggering. With all this information being gathered it can be hard to quickly see certain events that require immediate attention. The events that you want to be alerted on immediately are Heartbeat failures. Seven Winds has seen once too often that support teams miss these heartbeat failures. We created a tool to assist the monitoring team to easily catch these events and create an audio and visual alert to grab their attention.
The Seven Winds Heartbeat Monitoring Tool is freeware. We encourage you to use this tool in your environment.
