UC Monitor

UC Monitor is a free monitoring and alerting solution for Skype for Business (Lync) Unified Communications solutions. The key goal is to make monitoring easy; on startup UC Monitor reads the Skype for Business topology, and automatically starts monitoring key system health indicators such as certificate validity, event log and services. UC Monitor is also capable of monitoring SNMP devices such Sonus SBC1000/2000 Session Border Controllers.

Currently the product is in beta and we’ll be enhancing and adding new monitors. If you have any ideas we look forward to your feedback.
