SCOM Trick 6 – VMware monitoring

A question that pops up a lot is if we can monitor VMware with SCOM. There are actually several options that deliver different levels of monitoring.

  • Veeam Nworks. A very complete third party SCOM add-on.
  • Bridgeways VMware monitoring MP.
  • Vizioncore (Quest).
  • SNMP and Syslog from SCOM
  • Jalasoft

I am sure there are more possibilities, but these are the most well-known I think.
My personal favorite is still Nworks as the most complete and robust system.
