The Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Server Management Pack for MOM 2005 monitors the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Server Application event log and performance counters. This management pack includes event rules for the Microsoft CRM Server, Exchange Router, and Windows Fax Router services. The events and performance counters monitored from each service help indicate some critical issues with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Server operations during the servicing of Microsoft CRM user requests.

The Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Server Management Pack provides the following features that help with:

  • Monitoring of health and availability of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Server services and the services they are depended on
  • Basic detection of brute force attacks and denial of service attacks
  • Notification of configuration-related failures
  • Performance measurement monitoring of Web application requests, e-mail messages, and fax messages processing

So if you use MOM 2005, give this download a try and and you can monitor your CRM servers too.
