The Monitoring pane in the Operations console of Operations Manager 2007 enables users who track and resolve issues to quickly find the monitoring data they need so that they can act on that data. The pane displays different aspects of monitoring data that is collected by Operations Manager 2007. Each item in the Monitoring pane is either a view type or a folder that contains views. The Find, Search, and Scope buttons on the Operations console can make it easier for users to manage that data.

For more information about the different view types available, see Views in Operations Manager 2007.

The views listed under the Monitoring node are global views that display aspects of your entire environment, such as current active alerts. The folders listed in the navigation pane are either features of Operations Manager, such as Agentless Exception Monitoring (AEM) and synthetic transactions, or containers for views defined within a management pack. The feature folders are created when Operations Manager is installed. The folders that contain views from management packs are created when the management pack is imported and are named after the management packs.

You cannot delete the folders or views that are created when Operations Manager is installed or when management packs are imported. However, you can personalize the display of these views by using the Personalize View feature in the Monitoring pane. Also, you can hide any of the folders by clicking Show or hide views, located just above the navigation buttons, and making your selections by clearing the appropriate check boxes in the Show or hide views window.

See the following topics in this section for detailed information about the operations you can perform from the Monitoring pane:
