1E System Center Watcher tool

The 1E System Center Watcher Service (OMWatcher) tool for System Center Operations Manager 2007 fills an important, and often overlooked gap in every OpsMgr environment. Arising from the question… “Who’s watching the watcher?” … 1E OMWatcher is designed to monitor the 3 critical service on the Root Management Server (SDK, Config and HealthService). 1E OMWatcher will proactively mitigate unnecessary and potentially expensive downtime by ensuring the RMS is active (via a ping), and taking remedial action should one of the core RMS services stop. In addition, 1E OMWatcher will notify administrators (via email) were an issue arises. Included in the download is an OpsMgr Management Pack to ensure a complete monitoring solution. Important – Please note that due to the interventionist nature of OMWatcher, it is not recommended for a clustered RMS.
