Veeam VMware custom monitors in Ops Mgr Authoring pane
You can create an Ops Mgr unit monitor based on one of the predefined Veeam MP for VMware monitor types — vCenter Alarm Monitor and vSphere Host Service Monitor:
|•||If based on the vCenter Alarm Monitor type, this monitor will use data obtained from Veeam Collectors to track custom alarms configured in the vCenter Server.|
|•||If based on the vSphere Host Service Monitor type, this monitor will use data obtained from Veeam Collectors to check the state of services running on ESXi hosts.|
Veeam MP now also offers the Show ESXi Host Services State task which you can run to get the list of all services installed on a host.

Customizable Veeam Morning Coffee Dashboard™
The Morning Coffee Dashboard is the first thing to see once you get to work. This dashboard provides at-a-glance real-time overview of your infrastructure. The dashboard tracks the state of infrastructure objects and the overall resource utilization, and immediately displays these changes in a single view.
Veeam MP 8.0 for System Center – Update 3 allows you to create your own customizable Morning Coffee Widget that you can include in dashboards. To learn how to create the Morning Coffee Widget, see the Operations Guide.
