Visibility We
L
acked


vCenter

Views


Did not entirely show us a full picture.


VMware showed a cluster with plenty of capacity available.


Memory and CPU, and first glance, don’t appear to be overly
taxed.


Qualitatively, we were aware of bottlenecks in the environment
but could not readily identify a bottleneck without mining
numerous systems for data
.


Most importantly, no alarms had been triggered whatsoever.

What We Know Now


vCenter

Operations


Cluster View


We can suddenly see true CPU contention on the cluster as
well as a calculated “normal” baseline.

What We Know Now


vCenter

Operations


Host View


As we drill down into the data, we get a clearer picture of what
is happening, and how isolated (or not) the problem is.

What We Learned


Unified Dashboard into Relevant Metrics


A Roll
-
up of metrics into a single
-
score system.


A system which understood “normal” and more
intelligently alerted us.
