Virtualisation Manager Overview
Moving to a virtual infrastructure brings about some fresh monitoring challenges for sys admins, how do you keep track of host and guest performance? The monitoring solutions that your vendor supplied only lets you view host and guest systems and their storage resources one at a time. Indeed most vendors only provide monitoring information at the very highest level, with no real drill down capability. Moving to a third party monitoring product makes a great deal of sense in order to prevent outages, be able to maintain service levels, and operationally a single console provides a central point for monitoring critical aspects of the virtual infrastructure.
