MP Authoring with fragments – Introducing combo fragments

Check out the latest video, from my session at Silect MP University

This video introduces some new combo fragments to help discover an application, monitor the app, create views for the application owner, all in a single step, with very limited information or time required.

    Excellent 5’*’s presentation May 21 MPsilect day training. So *if* someone waited around for the day’s last session–(yours!) s/he was not disappointed.
    I am learning in-depth XML fragments for building LINUX application EDI process monitors in SCOM 2016 with my tiny Chicagoland team.
    I will enjoy this blog site and your training videos—thank you!

    …Watching your 3pm presentation yesterday showed me, I do have a good (flawed) understanding of SCOM XML elements / attributes structures but obviously LACK the working relationship for Discovery, Classes, Monitors, Overrides, Packages— that general architecture during the build/testing phases.
    I love XML fragments, the MP studio GUI tool and now v10 enhancements! Thanks!

    Another great video.
    I have watched quite a few of these MP Authoring videos from Brian Wren’s MVA Mangement Pack 23 modules to everything Kevin Holman puts out. However, is there any info on how to organize or approach application teams to get a better view of of their service models and convert that into MPs or Distributed applications?

    I saw a diagram by Jonathan Almquist, and it is very helpful. Brian Wren’s MVA modules touch base on it as well.
    Something more at the Application level would be very helpful.

      My service model designs for applications are VERY flat, typically. I despise complex service models and find they add so much complexity to the product. KISS

    Hello Kevin,
    Thanks for the blog,do we have fragment for service monitor to trigger an alert only if that service goes down on both servers.
