The Lync 2013 Management Pack provides great monitoring possibilities, it is well documented and works as expected. Below I will share some screenshots, just to give an idea on what to expect.
Monitoring Folders and views that are created.
Pools State View
Servers State view
Diagram view with the health state of the major components.
The Management Pack also includes some reports.
The Lync Component Alerts Report
And the System Usage Report
I also created a custom “Synthetic Transactions” availability report. It shows the configured Synthetic Transactions and will report downtime if a test didn’t run properly.
The Lync 2013 really is a great Management pack, providing deep monitoring, visualization and reporting.
