Virtualization allows the rapid provisioning of systems. LogicMonitor automates the monitoring of these systems, reducing your workload.
Monitoring XenServer with LogicMonitor is easy: all you need to do is enter the XenServer hostname, and all information about your Xen infrastructure will be discovered automatically. For both the Citrix and Open Source versions of XenServer, LogicMonitor automatically discovers and monitors:
- all xen servers in a resource pool
- all server interfaces, CPUs, and memory usage
- all storage repositories
- all virtual machines, and their disks, memory, and interfaces
- the high availability state of the pool, and whether resources are over committed
By using the XenServer native API to query Xen specific performance counters, LogicMonitor provides a wealth of performance data and intelligence, offering unmatched visibility into the XenServer environment.
Just a few of the critical XenServer metrics we monitor:
XenServer host metrics
Monitor metrics for all your XenServer hosts in the pool – and see at a glance critical graphs of CPU, memory usage, network throughput 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 XenServer monitoring.
Host performance metrics
As well as XenServer specific monitoring, LogicMonitor’s device monitoring provides extensive information and best practices alerts to ensure your infrastructure is running well -or to let you know if it’s not.
XenServer Virtual Machine metrics
Monitor metrics for all the virtual machines in your XenServer pools automatically as new VMs are added and deleted. See at a glance graphs of virtual machine CPU, memory usage, network throughput, and use automatically generated overview graphs to immediately identify virtual machines imposing unusual loads.
Because LogicMonitor can discover and monitor both the XenServer environment as well as the VM 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 is the only solution that allows you to correlate performance issues and bottlenecks – no matter where the root cause is located in your infrastructure.
