Manage Performance, Measure Capacity and Perform Chargeback
Understanding the performance of the virtual infrastructure is complex challenge. Determining how the four core resources (i.e., CPU, Memory, Disk and Network) support of the infrastructure is essential, along with understanding how the many components in the environment impact one another. Failing to provide adequate resources can lead to
reduced performance and availability, which could greatly impact applications and end users. However, providing too many resources can impact server utilization and conflicts with why virtualization was adopted in the first place. Additionally, organizations need to achieve service quality and cost objectives, therefore being able recover costs for the use of infrastructure and meeting service level agreements (SLA) have become key objectives.
With vFoglight, administrators can visualize the entire infrastructure through detailed architectural representations and leverage out-of-the-box alerts and expert advice to detect, diagnose and resolve problems affecting performance and availability. Scenariobased models and predictive alerts also help organizations plan, manage and optimize
infrastructure capacity, improving performance and resource utilization. Additionally, vFoglight uses industry chargeback models to help track infrastructure utilization, enabling costs to be recovered for the services provided. And with built-in service dependency models, vFoglight lets administrators define SLA achievement and proactively monitor service health and availability.
vFoglight helps organizations:
- Provide clarity and expertise to performance and availability issues through architectural representations and relationships
- Ensure adequate resources in support of virtualization goals, help administrators to trend, forecast and communicate current and future capacity.
- Track infrastructure utilization so costs can be recovered for the services provided.
- Determine dependencies between components and define SLA achievement.
vFoglight is offered in two editions, vFoglight™ SE (Standard Edition), which offers best-in-class monitoring for your virtual infrastructure, and vFoglight™ Pro, which offers all the features of vFoglight SE plus new advanced features designed to raise the bar for virtual and physical server monitoring.
