One of the many advantages of using a TMG firewall is its easy integration with your System Center Operations Manager infrastructure. However, in order to get that integration, you need the management pack.

With detailed alert information, you can quickly identify and troubleshoot Forefront TMG issues, minimizing time-to-resolution when problems occur.
You can collect and analyze performance trends and metrics, and obtain performance information that allows you to manage bottlenecks, identify capacity requirements, and proactively manage your Forefront TMG deployment to resolve issues before problems occur.
