Tim Mangan, the fifth Microsoft App-V MVP, created a nice whitepaper about the System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) management pack for App-V 4.5. The whitepaper describes the installation, configuration and (health) monitoring capabilities.

For an organization that uses System Center Operations Manager already, this free management pack
from Microsoft can be a welcome addition that allows some limited monitoring capabilities. It is most
appropriate in larger organizations where the division of responsibility leads to a list of servers and
services that need to get checked off of a “to do” list by personnel who do not really even need to have
a cursory knowledge what the server or service does. In that regard, additional configuration of the
pack, through disabling of monitors or setting overrides, will need to be performed by someone more
familiar with App-V to eliminate unwanted alerts and state display warnings.
