In the second part of this series we’ve created the Virtual Machine Super Metrics needed for the OvDC Admin Custom Dashboard. The rest of the Super Metrics we are about to create in this part, are the ones related to vCloud Resource Kinds and will focus on calculating metrics while taking Resource Kind hierarchy into account.
In the first part for this series we’ve installed and configured vCloud adapter for vC Ops. The OvDC Admin Custom Dashboard includes many elements related to one another which are mostly rely on Super Metrics. In this post we will create the Virtual Machine related Super Metrics.
vCloud Director is defiantly one of my favorites. It has lots of use cases, accessible API for orchestration and once you get all the different network concepts you are pretty much good to go, but how do you manage all of it in an efficient manner? The one thing I was always missing was a comprehensive monitoring for it, especially on the Organization Virtual Datacenter (OvDC) level. Luckily, I got vC Ops on my side!
If you are in the management and operations business like I am, Blue Medora integration with VMware vCenter Operations Manager is definitely something to keep track on!
The 2014 VMware vExpert list was published last night and I’m so honored and humbled to be on that list for the second time in a row. This year’s list has total of 754 members including quite a few new members as well. Being part of the vCommunity is a big deal for me! When I started this blog two years ago it was because I wanted to give back to the community that helped me so much during the years. Only the people who are part of it know how much special it is. On that note I would [Read More]
So, the annual vSphere-land.com (sponsored by Veeam) “Best Virtualization Blog” results are out and I happy to say that I achieved my goal to enter the top 100. This has being great blogging year for me and these kind of achievements make me blogging even more (not that I need the motivation ) I’m also very happy for my good buddy and VMware colleague Sunny Due over at http://vxpresss.blogspot.in/ who became a father to a new sweet baby boy and for making a UGH 123 places jump straight to the #28 spot – WOW To finish this one out I would [Read More]
Who doesn’t love VM snapshots?! They are easy to create, give great value and helps with day-to-day operations. In this post I would like to share a cool VM snapshots vC Ops management trick (spoiler alert: Super Metric will be created )
One out of many vC Ops qualities is its ability to tell how efficient is the virtual environment. Using Super-Metrics I will perform some density ratios percentage based calculations.
