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‚ĄĘ SE (Standard Edition), which offers¬†best-in-class monitoring for your virtual infrastructure, and vFoglight‚ĄĘ Pro, which offers¬†all the features of vFoglight SE plus new advanced features designed to raise the bar for¬†virtual and physical server monitoring.
