Managing Management Packs

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 R2, Operations Manager 2007 SP1

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

Management packs might also contain tasks, diagnostics, and recovery tools and guidance to help fix problems.

New and updated management packs are continually being released. The recommendations in the Administering the Management Pack Life Cycle topic will help you manage the changes in your monitoring environment.
