JAMS Job Scheduler 5.4 adds enterprise monitoring and alerting through a new SCOM
21 June 2012 – MVP Systems Software, Inc., a leading provider of
enterprise job scheduling and workload automation
software, announced today that it has extended the monitoring and alerting capabilities
of JAMS Job Scheduler with the release of a SCOM Management Pack. The Operations
Center Management Pack will be available through both the
JAMS web site and the Microsoft System Center Marketplace.
The JAMS Management Pack for SCOM allows SCOM users to actively monitor JAMS components
and services throughout their IT infrastructure. Leveraging the Management Pack,
users can, in real time, view resources such as the availability and health of the
JAMS Agent and the JAMS Scheduler. The system state for any machine on which JAMS
is running can also be monitored with SCOM. The JAMS Management Pack can monitor
JAMS Agents running on servers as well as ones running on multiple hypervisors.
In addition to these capabilities, the JAMS Management Pack for SCOM supports agent
tasks and dashboard views.
The JAMS Management Pack captures Performance Monitor data, enabling SCOM users
to spot load balancing and resource allocation issues before they cause a problem.
A backlog of pending jobs or halted jobs within JAMS often signals that a resource
is overloaded. With SCOM monitoring in place, IT managers can set custom alert rules
and see the exact point of failure.
“Our SCOM Management Pack gives JAMS users an added level of control over their
automated processes,” says David Kluskiewicz, VP Marketing at MVP. “With monitoring
enabled, they can be more proactive in identifying obstacles to automation in advance
of their impact. Our goal for SCOM users is for them to receive as much useful information
before a job fails as they do after.”
The JAMS Management Pack currently supports SCOM 2007R2 and SCOM 2012.
