VMware Performance Monitoring with Motadata AIOps

VMware monitoring is an essential element when it comes to virtual IT infrastructure monitoring. It helps you discover your clusters, data centres, hypervisors, and after monitoring them you can achieve rich analytics, capacity planning and forecasting.

Motadata helps ensure that your resources are appropriately utilized. It also detects anomalies and forecasts potential trends to make strategies. In addition, it provides advanced monitoring of VMware-virtualized servers and a single management console for the whole physical and virtual server infrastructure.

Motadata AIOps, a VMware monitoring tool, can ingest the ESXi logs with the help of the out-of-box dynamic parsers, helping you capture the hypervisor activities, providing you an at glance view across your virtualized infrastructure. In addition, with DRS (Distributed Resource Scheduler) enabled, you can monitor the activities and resolve the issues effectively with root cause analysis.

Motadata discovers the clusters and virtual machines through vCenter and ESXi discovery. It identifies the network elements configured in virtual machines – such as nodes, virtual machines, clusters, data stores, data centers, etc.

Motadata provides information about the cluster’s configuration and device status. Further drill-down instances can be discovered by re-discovering/registering new network components.

Measure Critical KPIs

VMware vCenter lets you manage all virtual machines and clusters under one platform. With Motadata AIOps, a VMware network monitor, you can map all the cluster elements and co-relate with other events as well, providing a holistic view and visibility into metrics of clusters, virtual servers, virtual machines etc.

Monitoring critical metrics helps ensure smooth overall performance. It provides the top performers for every KPI, such as memory usage, CPU percentage, CPU capacity, disk free space, etc.

Some of the important KPIs of VMware monitoring are:

Sr. No. Counter Description
1 vcenter.memory.used.bytes The amount of memory used on the vcenter.
2 vcenter.cpu.used.hz The used clock rate of the CPU.
3 vcenter.resource.pools The count of resource pools in the vcenter.
4 vcenter.virtual.machines The count of virtual machines on the vcenter.
5 vcenter.data center.memory.used.percent The percentage of used memory out of the total memory on the data center.
6 vcenter.data center.cpu.percent The CPU utilisation of data center.
7 vcenter.datastore.used.percent The percentage of used space out of the total space on the datastore.
8 esxi.disk.used.percent The percentage of disk space used for ESXi
9 esxi.cpu.percent The percentage of CPU utilization for ESXi
10 esxi.cpu.ready.seconds The amount of time spent in a ready state for CPU utilization for ESXi
11 esxi.cpu.used.hz The amount of CPU used in hertz for ESXi
12 esxi.running.virtual.machines The number of virtual machines currently running on the ESXi host
13 esxi.network.bytes.per.sec The rate of network traffic in bytes per second
14 esxi.disk.free.percent The percentage of free disk space available on the ESXi host
15 esxi.memory.used.percent The percentage of memory used by the ESXi host
16 esxi.vm.cpu.percent Percentage of CPU time used by the ESXi VM
17 esxi.vm.memory.used.percent Percentage of used memory of the ESXi VM
18 esxi.vm.network.bytes.per.sec Total bytes per second transferred by the virtual machine
19 esxi.vm.disk.used.percent Percentage of disk space used by the virtual machine
20 esxi.network.interface.bytes.per.sec The rate at which bytes are transmitted and received by the network interface.
21 esxi.datastore.used.percent Percentage of used space on the datastore
22 esxi.datastore.read.bytes.per.sec Read bytes per second
23 esxi.datastore.read.ops.per.sec Read operations per second
