ESX Monitoring Utilities


ESX Monitoring Utilities.

 

 

A Bit Off from Microsoft, I thought of posting the major utilities which can be used to monitor ESX server. I was working on one of the project where I was required to monitor the entire ESX solution which consisted of

 

ESX server 3.5

Vcenter

VM’s Hosted on ESX

SAN

 

Also we planned for second architecture where we configured

 

Hyper – V server

Microsoft VM’s

SAN

FC ( Fiber Channel)

 

 

We had completed the setup, but interestingly we didn’t had monitoring piece to keep track of  VM’s load and their performance with respect to

 

Disk

I/O

Network

CPU

 

We used NAGIOS as it’s a free ware for testing. And below are the utilities which are of greater use.
