View System Center Operations Manager Alerts As An RSS Feed

When you install System Center Operations Manager 2007, you have the option to install a Web Console Server component, see here.  The Web Console Server provides a browser based view of the monitoring pane from the Operations Console.  A useful feature of the web console is that it exposes an RSS feed of alerts.  In the screenshot below you can see an RSS button.  This loads an RSS feed of active alerts.

Other alerts related to management packs you’ve installed are also available as RSS feeds.  The example below shows the RSS button for Dell MD storage alerts.
