Slack is hot! I see it with customers, me and my wife teams are using it (she work as a java developer at eBay BTW), and I also starting to see it in traditional IT. I also love vROps so I thought to myself, hey, why not leverage Slack to display vROps alerts and make collaboration more efficient?!
By now many of you have heard of Blue Medora, a VMware partner and creator of platform extensions (a.k.a., management packs) for vROps. One of Blue Medora’s newest offerings is the vROps Management Pack for Oracle Database.
A variety of the available vRealize Operations Manager management packs require a Microsoft Windows-based remote collector as a part of their vROps architecture. Since the majority of customers deploy the Linux-based OVA, the steps for installation and configuration of a Windows-based remote collector are often unfamiliar to administrators.
Citrix Xen admins are faced with a complicated set of challenges when it comes to managing their Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environments. Application performance—often recognized as one of the key indicators of user satisfaction and productivity—can be affected by a number of issues in both the Citrix VDI and VMware virtual layers.
I just love vSphere Tags. I think it’s one of those vSphere features that people don’t use that much – what a shame because when it comes to vROps integration it can come very handy!
From time to time a change is needed and in the case of vROps, changing the Master Node IP address is not something you will do via the GUI (well, at least not all the configurations 🙂 ).
I am a big vROps Interactions XML fan, as a matter of fact I’ve written on this topic a few times before. Now that the vApp structure has changed from 2 to 1 VM, I wasn’t able to find my beloved XML files. So dude, where are my XML’s?
In the previous part we have created a 2-node vRealize Operations 6 High Availability cluster. With its new architecture, vROps unified UI is expected to get lots of HTTPS requests traffic so it only makes sense to load balancing it, no?!
