We have a solution built in .Net that will be installed into a client environment.
The solution will span multiple servers and be running on multiple tiers. The client makes us of MOM (Microsoft operations Manager) to monitor the system.
What are the best counters to use for monitoring the overall health of the system? Are there any built in counters that we could add into a MOM Pack (as an Alert) to test a given scenario?
Any thoughts suggestions would be much apreciated.
I have found the following info on WCF, but I am still looking for similar information in terms of Workflow, IIS and .Net:
How to use performance counters to diagnose performance of WCF applications
This article discusses the WCF perf counters. The counters are not enabled by default. Enabling the method level counters may however have a performance overhead due to the sheer numbers.
We have already discussed these before, and we should be able to test and validate them as soon as we get a new stable build into the perf test environment.
