In the third part of this series we’ve created the vCloud Resource Kind performance Super Metrics needed for the OvDC Admin Custom Dashboard. As a cloud provider you are required to some level of SLA against your customers. It’s not all about resources performance but it is also the fact that you need to give them a way to control resource consuming.
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.
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.
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.
