Introducing the UNIX/Linux Authoring Library for SC 2012 – Operations Manager

Over at the TechNet Gallery, I’ve posted a new resource I am calling the UNIX/Linux Authoring Library MP. This is an example library MP project, which features numerous Probe/Write Action and Data Source composite modules and numerous Unit Monitor Types. These modules should cover many common UNIX/Linux authoring scenarios. The library MP is provided as a sealed MP, along with the VSAE source project.

Documentation and examples for the using the Library can be found here.

Some of the key scenarios covered include:


The full reference for the library MP can be found on the documentation page here.

Happy authoring!

  1. Hi, thanks so much for sharing this. The examples on here and the library made my first use of VSAE a success!

    Today I created custom monitoring for a Solaris 11 app using a custom class, a script discovery and a few unit monitors. Amazing stuff, thanks again.
