Using the System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 connector for Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 (download CTP1 here), operations teams can easily forward application performance monitoring information directly into Visual Studio Team Foundation Server as operational work items, enabling engineering teams to rapidly identify the root cause in the code itself and develop a fix. This will dramatically reduce the mean time to repair (MTTR). In CTP1, the following is a supported configuration:

  • Windows 2008 R2 x64
  • System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2
  • AVIcode .NET Enterprise Management Pack 5.7 for Operations Manager
  • Microsoft Visual Studio Team Explorer 2010
  • .NET Framework 4.0

How does it all work? Well, Avicode monitors the .NET application from within System Center Operations Manager and raises alerts when things (are about to) go wrong. Through the connector framework, Alerts are sent to TFS and created as an ‘operational issue’ (work item). The developer uses Visual Studio to follow-up and gets a direct link into Avicode to view the exact error, context, etc. (more)
