Virtual Infrastructure Monitoring

AggreGate Network Manager facilitates the consolidation, monitoring, automation, optimization and planning of your VMware-based virtual infrastructure.

Health and performance tracking is supported for:

VMware vSphere
VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisors
Virtual machines (VMs)
Guest operating systems

Since the Linux-based ESX server's operating system and Guest OSs act like conventional systems outside a virtualization environment, they can be monitored using the generic AggreGate tools.

VM-specific information is handled by a set of dedicated alerts, charts and reports for the VM state change, high memory usage, undue CPU load and excessive disk I/O, along with the VMware Information widget, providing a consolidated view.

Virtual Machine Status Monitoring

AggreGate Network Manager auto-discovers the ESX servers in your network, retrieves characteristics of the existing VMs and applies the optimal monitoring parameters for them. Once the virtual machine monitoring is activated, AggreGate's pre-defined alerts notify a system administrator about the VM state changes, e.g. shutdowns or launches.

VM-specific details are available through the VMware Information widget and VMware Summary report:

Virtual machine ID
Current status of the Virtual Machine
Guest operating system
State of the guest OS

Virtual Machine Performance Monitoring

AggreGate Network Manager provides two VM performance measuring approaches: absolute utilization indicators and relative used/allocated ratio. Depending on a resource type, one of them or both are used for:

CPU Load alert and chart
Absolute and relative Memory Utilization alerts, charts and reports
Disk Read/Write Rate alerts and charts
Network Incoming/Outgoing Traffic charts
