In the following C# console application:

  • An instance of a Management Group object is created.

  • A monitoring connector is created, set up, and initialized.

For more information about connectors, see Connecting to External Systems by Using Operations Manager Connectors. A MonitoringConnector can pass information only for the alerts that are marked for monitoring connector. The MonitoringConnector must be set up and initialized before any alerts can be retrieved. Similarly, to remove a MonitoringConnector, it must be uninitialized before it can be deleted (cleanup).

After installing Microsoft System Center Operations Manager, an instance of MonitoringConnector named "MOM Internal Connector" appears in the database. This instance is not intended for use in your code.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
