Management Packs in Operations Manager 2007

Management packs contain predefined monitoring settings that enable agents to monitor a specific service or application in Operations Manager 2007. These predefined settings include discovery information that allows management servers to automatically detect and begin monitoring objects, a knowledge base that contains error and troubleshooting information, alerts, and reports.

Some management packs are imported automatically when Operations Manager is installed. These management packs contain basic settings that Operations Manager uses. Other management packs are designed to monitor specific applications and can be obtained from the vendor that created the application. If you have an application that does not have a management pack, you can use the tools in Operations Manager to create monitoring settings or to create your own management pack for the application.

You can obtain management pack files either from the vendor of the management pack or from the Management Pack Catalog.
