Discoveries slow with a cluster?

Filed under: Issues, Microsoft, SCOM 2007 — opsmgr @ 8:35 pm

I have been working with SCOM for a while and I found that when you have a cluster that is being monitored the ScOM Root Management Server slows down with its discovery. I believe this is because when monitoring large clusters with many Databases and Virual Servers these are obviously viewed as Agentless devices. This is slightly contradictory as you actually do have an agent on each cluster node.

Its also becoming obvious to me that agent discovery is setup in a queue. This means that should you add a new system with lots of discoverable entities then this will need to complete first before the next lot of discoveries takes place.

When i mean discoveries I am talking about what the SCOM Agent will monitor, not server discoveries. My best advise to you if you find discovering slow, be patient 🙂
