Long Wait Over for Team Foundation Server 2015 Management Pack for System Center

Finally out of development, SCOM Management Pack for TFS 2015 allows monitoring of TFS 2015 from System Center Operations Manager.

The Visual Studio Team has finally unleashed Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2015 Management Pack for System Center, a release that has been under development for a "painfully and embarrassingly long time," according to Microsoft's Brian Harry, in a short blog post.

The SCOM Management Pack for TFS 2015 in essence allows monitoring of TFS 2015 from System Center Operations Manager, from application tier servers, data tier servers, team project collections, build servers, and proxy servers.

SCOM Management Pack for TFS 2015 features: TFS component autodiscovery; task, diagnostic and recovery information from failures; event logging of service outages; alerts that can be enabled for configuration issues and changes, as well as changes in data source connections.

SCOM Management Pack for TFS 2015 can be downloaded here.
