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.
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.
