Microsoft acquired AVIcode at the end of 2010. Starting the day the deal closed we have been working hard to integrate the AVIcode technologies into Operations Manager 2012 and with the beta release you can start to use the first phase of our new .NET Monitoring features that are focused on IIS 7 hosted web applications and services:
How do you use it?
.NET Monitoring is a part of OM, there is no additional infrastructure to roll out and maintain, the required service and modules are all installed as part of the OM installation/upgrade. The only additional step you may need to do is importing the Windows Server 2008 Internet Information Services 7 MP. The IIS 7 MP is used to discover the applications we will monitor.
Once you have the application inventory available, you need to know 2 things:
With this information, you use the .NET Application Performance Monitoring template wizard to configure monitoring.
That’s it; you are now monitoring the appliction group.
What do you get?
Where to next?
This is just phase 1, we are adding additional configuration options as we move past beta and look to RC. At RC you will have direct control over the monitor configurations, where we collect data, how we collect data and even customizing monitoring for specific web pages and service calls. These are exciting times for anyone who is interested in monitoring both the servers and the applications that rely on them. Operations Manager 2012 provides deep, consistent views into both the infrastructure and the applications; making it much easier to find and resolve issues before they impact your end users.

When I use the new version with IIS7 Windows NLB servers that use Shared Coniguration and a url for the web site I am not getting it to work. However with DFS-R it does solve the problem.
Simon, could you describe your issue a bit better? I am not sure I understood what's going on there.
Danielle - that's an under-statement :-)
