Microsoft Key Management Service (KMS) APM Template

Version 1

    Monitors Microsoft Key Management Service, which is used for activating licenses on Microsoft products such as Windows OS. This template monitors the server perspective of KMS.

    Monitor details:

         Software Protection Service - Standard service warning/critical settings, down on not running

         TCP port - Warning on latency higher than 1000ms, down on can’t connect

         KMS current client count  - Warning on less than 25 clients, Critical on -1 (means not a KMS server)

         The other monitors are just gathering statistics but if you have a known threshold for your environment (at least 1 request per hour) you could set up alerting here as well.
