Monitor VMware Virtual Environments with PRTG
- PRTG controls your entire virtual environment.
- PRTG is configured to control all aspects of VMware.
- PRTG has been a technology partner of Vmware for many years.
Benefits of Proper Virtualization Monitoring
Implementing a virtualization project is only a good idea if you are confident that you can monitor CPU usage, disk space usage, and network performance. If this failure occurs, it also affects virtual machines and this will lead to big problems. A comprehensive monitoring tool helps to identify any potentially problematic areas.
TIMELY FAILURE NOTIFICATIONS
If there are too many virtual machines running on the same host, it can overload the system. With our PRTG tool, you can set thresholds, e.g. 75%. If these thresholds are exceeded, PRTG sends a push notification via email, SMS, or pager of your choice. Thanks to this, you will know about the problem even before your customers or employees notice something is wrong.
PRTG: Customizable Monitoring Software
We’ve been a VMware Certified Technology Partner for several years now. This gives us the opportunity to have a good understanding of the VMware system.
Having specific device templates helps you quickly and easily integrate PRTG Network Monitor into your infrastructure.
This is provided to us by our “sensors” – the points of measurement of certain aspects of the device. Thus, PRTG can monitor every parameter of the virtual environment. VMware currently has the following sensors:
VMWARE VIRTUAL MACHINE (SOAP) SENSOR
Monitor a virtual machine on a VMWare host server using SOAP. This sensor displays CPU usage and memory usage, disk read and write speeds, and network transfer rates for a single virtual machine.
VMWARE HOST HARDWARE (WBEM) SENSOR
VMware Host Hardware PRTG sensors enable you to monitor ESX/ESXi servers. This sensor displays the primary server temperature, current power consumption, fan speed, battery voltage, and operating status.
VMWARE HOST HARDWARE STATUS (SOAP) SENSOR
The VMware Host Hardware Status PRTG monitors the status of the host’s computing system. This sensor displays the total number of objects in the “normal”, “warning” and “alarm” states in the same way as the vSphere client does.
VMWARE DATA WAREHOUSE (SOAP) SENSOR
The VMware Data Warehouse sensor monitors hard drive usage and data storage status.
