VMware ESX Monitoring …quickly and automatically.
Virtualization allows the rapid provisioning of systems – LogicMonitor automates the monitoring of these systems, reducing your workload.
Monitoring VMware ESX server or vSphere with LogicMonitor’s hosted solution is easy: all you need to do is enter the Virtual Center or ESX server host name, and all information about your ESX infrastructure will be discovered. LogicMonitor automatically discovers and monitors all:
- ESX hosts
- virtual machines
- resource pools
- hardware health
By using the VMware native API to query ESX performance counters, LogicMonitor provides a wealth of performance data and intelligence, offering unmatched visibility into the VMware environment.
And because LogicMonitor can discover and monitor not only the VMware environment, but also the virtual machine’s operating systems, the applications running on the VMs (such as IIS, MySQL, Apache, etc), and the performance metrics of the storage arrays backing the datastores, LogicMonitor allows you to correlate performance issues and bottlenecks – no matter where in the infrastructure the root cause is.
Just a few of the critical VMware metrics we monitor:
VMware host metrics
Monitor VMware metrics for all your hosts – and see at a glance critical graphs of memory usage, swap rate, CPU load, disk latency and more. Predefined best practices alerts warn you of impending issues that can affect your virtual machines, and provide recommendations – without you having to be expert in VMware monitoring.
VMware virtual machine monitoring
Detect all your virtual machines, and monitor them all, automatically. Graph CPU load, network, memory usage, VMkernel swap rates, ballooning, and more. Detailed statistics and alerts let you track down VM performance issues, quickly and easily.
VMware virtual machine overview
When you want to head off performance issues, LogicMonitor will show you all your virtual machines at a glance, and let you see how each is impacting Disk IO, Memory and CPU resources of the underlying ESX host. Know which machines are slowing, and why.
ESX and ESXi hardware monitoring
An ESXi host with many virtual machines becomes critically important. LogicMonitor’s VMware monitoring system discovers and monitors the hardware supporting your ESX infrastructure, so you know of issues before they affect your users. Is your power redundant? Or has one power supply failed, and a single failure will now take your host down? With LogicMonitor, you’ll know.
Add in LogicMonitor’s powerful monitoring of Linux, Windows, and applications on the virtual machines – and you’ve got your VMware monitoring issues solved. Get away from silos of management tools. Get LogicMonitor.
