So, the annual vSphere-land.com (sponsored by Veeam) “Best Virtualization Blog” voting is now open. This will be the first I’m attempting to enter this distinguished bloggers list and I hope I will be able to leave a mark. If you feel I deserved your vote and I was able to help you with some of my posts please make sure to cast your vote for my blog, it will take no longer then 10min. If you don’t think I deserve it, well, that’s also fine but still take the time to show your appreciation to the VMware community bloggers, we [Read More]
In my 1-Click Capacity Planning vCOps Dashboard blog series I’ve created 6 vCOps Super-Metrics. Two of them calculating ESXi host cluster CPU and memory total provisioned capacity. But let us not forget HA Admission Control behind.
In part 1 and part 2 we’ve covered how to create the Super Metrics and the custom XML files for our 1-Click Capacity Planning Interactive Custom Dashboard (WOW that’s a long name for a dashboard ). In the final part for this series we will finally create this great dashboard. Let’s start…
In the first part for this series I covered some of the super metrics needed for pulling out ESXi Cluster capacity planning data in vCOps. In this part I would like to show you how to work with vCOps interaction mode XML files.
Going back to the early days of virtualization, capacity planning always was a process needed to be done in some point. If you into virtualization you know what the benefits are and why it’s important to go through a thorough capacity planning process but sometimes it’s hard to know what or where to look and where to begin.
Following my previous post around integrating the vCOps Custom UI with Active Directory, I had another talk with a fellow teammate about the fact that the process of providing limited view to user for a specific dashboard is not that intuitive. Once again, let’s try to simplify things.
Last week I had a talk around the fact that integrating vCOps Custom UI with Active Directory is not that of an intuitive process, let’s try simplify it.
In my previous post for this series I touched on both the allocation and demand models available to us when using vCops for capacity planning. As we have seen, playing with vCops capacity planning policy is important. Let’s continue with the configurations.
