MP Authorfor Operations Manager

Design and Develop Management Packs for Operations Manager 2012 with Silect's MP Author - FREE

You don’t have to be a developer to build System Center Operations Manager management packs (MPs). Our intuitive and intelligent wizard-driven designer lets you build completely new MPs or even customize existing MPs for single or distributed applications—without needing knowledge of the underlying MP structure or XML development skills. And best of all, it’s FREE.

  • Reduce the complexity of MPs by providing an intuitive interface for creating common discovery and monitoring scenarios 
  • Create management pack elements, including discoveries and classes using simple easy to use registry and WMI browsers, as well as via advanced scripting capabilities
  • Author product knowledge
  • Create new MPs without requiring access to the management group
  • Optimize using Microsoft’s Best Practices Analyzer before production

Have an application that you’d like to manage within SCOM? With MP Design & Development you can design and develop MPs for in-house applications or applications that have no vendor supplied MP. You can also use MP Author to customize existing MPs by importing existing unsealed MPs and modify them to monitor exactly what you need and when you need it. Plus, with MP Validation you can verify the MP before you import it into OpsMgr.
