Microsoft System Center Operations Manager

Overview

Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) is an agent-based monitoring system for the Microsoft Windows operating system and compatible applications.

SCOM collects and stores statistics from Windows servers in Operations (PerformanceDataAllView) and DataWareHouse (vperf_raw, vperf_hourly, vperf_daily) database views.

Axibase Collector queries PerformanceDataAllViewin the SCOM Operations database view every 30 minutes to offload incremental data into the Axibase Time Series Database for long-term retention and operations analytics.
