Introduction

The Nutanix solution is a converged storage and compute solution which leverages local components and creates a distributed platform for virtualization. The solution is a bundled hardware and software appliance which houses 2 or 4 nodes. Each node runs an industry-standard hypervisor - namely, VMware ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V, or Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV). To provide total performance visibility into a Nutanix powered data center, monitoring of the Acropolis Hypervisor is necessary.

eG Enterprise v 6.2 provides comprehensive 'In-N-Out' monitoring, diagnosis and reporting for Nutanix Acropolis. All of the capabilities supported for other hypervisors such as VMware ESXi, Citrix XenServer and Microsoft Hyper-V are now supported for Nutanix Acropolis.

Both the server virtualization and desktop virtualization models of Acropolis can be monitored using eG.

This document discusses both these models and how eG Enterprise monitors them.
