VMware vSphere Monitoring

This ZenPack provides support for monitoring VMware vSphere. Monitoring is performed through a vCenter server using the vSphere API.

Features Summary:

  • Initial discovery and continual synchronization of relevant components
  • Performance monitoring
  • Event management
  • Optional auto-discovery and monitoring of VM guest operating systems
  • vSAN cluster health monitoring (on vSAN-enabled clusters only, not individual ESXi hosts)
  • Service impact and root-cause analysis
  • Operational reports

This ZenPack is developed and supported by Zenoss Inc. Commercial ZenPacks are available to Zenoss commercial customers only. Contact Zenoss to request more information regarding this or any other ZenPacks. Click here to view all available Zenoss Commercial ZenPacks.

Automatic Discovery and Performance Monitoring

The VMware vSphere ZenPack automatically discovers, inventories and categorizes your complete VMware infrastructure, including virtual hosts and guests, physical servers, and VMware data stores whenever they are added, moved or removed. This ZenPack allows you to track real-time availability and performance metrics for all virtualized resources. The real-time vMotion detection keeps track of VMs that move between ESX servers.

Dynamic Service Impact Analysis

This ZenPack tracks service dependencies among VMware components and the services they support using our patented service impact model. It allows you to collect data from VMware components to create a real-time model of the relationships and dependencies between this infrastructure and the services supported, making it easier to identify the root cause and service impact of incidents affecting VMware systems.

Root-Cause Analysis and Health Monitoring

The VMware vSphere ZenPack quickly and automatically identifies the likely root cause of VMware performance and availability service events. It also helps IT Ops to optimize VMware deployments by generating health, utilization and capacity trend reports. You can easily identify and address common performance issues and event trends before service quality is impacted.

Using Zenoss to Monitor Your VMware vSphere Components:

  • Provides comprehensive and unified VMware monitoring
  • Provides a real-time, accurate view of dynamic infrastructures from a single dashboard
  • Provides a service-centric view of VMware environments with end-to-end service impact
  • Helps you resolve incidents faster and optimize VMware infrastructure
