Complete monitoring solution for virtualized SCADAS running NT4+
Posted on 2009-04-25
I am working in a project to virtualize about 200-300 SCADA systems (The PC running the HMI ). The operating systems on the SCADAs vary, NT4, Win 2000, Win 2003, XP, some have different service packs.
For monitoring hardware health they are currently using HP Insight manager 2.0 agents and HP insight manager 5.0 on the server. For troubleshooting they use Damewore to access the processes running on the SCADAs.
I am looking into a solution for monitoring:
1. Hardware status: disks, psu, temperature,
2. Configuration of Virtual machines
3. The operating system and the applications running inside the virtual machine
I've looked into Microsoft System Center, but I can't find an answer if it is a feasible solution for my problem.
Is it possible to find a single product that can monitor (according to the three points above) as well as keeping reports and statistics.
