Capabilities of Site24x7 VMware performance monitoring tool

Monitor the health of VMware hardware

Troubleshoot problems with hardware health

Monitor the health of ESX/ESXi host hardware components such as CPU processor, memory, fan, temperature, voltage, power, storage, battery, and Watchdog with threshold settings and alerts.

Assess datastore performance

Analyze I/O performance metrics by measuring latency and read-write speeds for every host and VM connected to the datastore. Identify whether you have too many VMs or poor disk performance. Obtain performance metrics at the host level, VM level, and guest OS level, and correlate them for complete vSphere performance monitoring.

Analyze snapshot behavior using VMware monitoring tool - Site24x7

Handle VM space issues by understanding snapshot behavior

Snapshots are the first place to look when a VM is slow or a datastore is full. View the snapshot space split-up categorized VM-wise, and learn how much percentage of your VM space is occupied by snapshots. You can also predict datastore snapshot space with AI-powered insights.

Monitor CPU, memory, and network usage

Measure active CPU and memory usage for each guest VM, and reduce memory size to free up unused memory for other VMs. Identify your network performance by monitoring network usage and bandwidth at the host and VM levels.

VMware VM Performance Metrics
Instant alerts and reports

Receive instant alerts

Configure AI-based threshold limits for all key performance metrics, and receive instant alerts on the mediums of your choice. Take remedial actions and receive SLA reports, custom reports, top N reports, health trend reports, and more, right in your inbox. Also, receive instant alerts when your VMs become orphaned so that you can take necessary actions like re-registering or removing them from the inventory.

Monitor VMware VDI

Keep VMware virtual desktops and remote workstations operating efficiently by monitoring VMware Horizon using Site24x7. Stay on top of your virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) by monitoring the health and performance of desktop pools, application pools, and virtual machines (VMs). Avoid resource contention and optimize resource allocation to ensure an accurate capacity planning.

Overview of VMware monitoring

What is VMware vSphere?

VMware vSphere is VMware's server virtualization product. It provides a user-friendly platform for implementing and managing virtual machines (VMs) on servers. It includes essential components such as vCenter, ESXi/ESXi hosts, VMs, datastores, and resource pools that work together to ensure the smooth operation of virtual servers, keeping them up and running efficiently.

What is the difference between VMware and vSphere?

VMware is a cloud computing and virtualization technology company that offers a suite of solutions for modern apps, multi-cloud, and digital workspaces. One of the products in their portfolio is vSphere, which is a server virtualization product specifically designed for implementing and managing virtual machines (VMs). vSphere serves as a powerful tool within VMware's comprehensive range of offerings.

What is VMware monitoring?

VMware monitoring is an IT process that involves monitoring different VMware resources for their availability, uptime, and performance. These VMware resources include components like vCenter, hypervisors such as ESX/ESXi hosts, VMs, data stores, resource pools, snapshots, and other hardware and software components that reside in a VMware environment.

How do I monitor my VM performance?

You can monitor the performance of your VMs using a VM performance monitoring tool like Site24x7. With Site24x7, you can monitor the VMs across virtualization platforms and your hybrid cloud. To monitor VMware VMs, install the Site24x7 On-Premise Poller, then add the VMware ESX/ESXi host associated with your VM for monitoring by providing the necessary credentials.

As the VMs are discovered and auto-added for monitoring, Site24x7 will start collecting VM performance data from VMware APIs and provide more monitoring insights than what the vSphere client provides. You can obtain various VM details and metrics, like space, CPU, network, memory, and disk utilization. You can also obtain VM space predictions powered by AI.
