After upgrading a System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 management group that was integrated with AVIcode 5.7 to System Center 2012 – Operations Manager, when trying to edit new or existing AVIcode 5.7 templates in the Operations Console, one of these errors occurs.. Continue reading
Where we quite often assume that pro-active application monitoring is what’s really needed, it does not mean that re-active monitoring does not happen. Actually, it does happen, and, moreover, it’s probably how monitoring happens most of the times. Continue reading
Occasionally, you will see .NET events that do not have any call stack information because they are “light”. Don’t get confused.. That’s an indication that .NET Agent has applied so-called “heavy-light” performance optimization to that particular event. Continue reading
System Center UI/functionality is not that familiar to the developers to feel comfortable with those tools. Development folks are used to the Visual Studio and other dev tools.

Due to the limitations of web recorder, you may not be able to record a browser session in the Operations Manager 2007 if you try to do it on the x64 version of Windows 2008. Most likely, the same applies to any supported 64 bit OS. Continue reading
