RHEV Clusters Test

This test auto-discovers the data centers configured on an RHEV manager and reports the composition, resource availability, and resource usage of each data center.  This way, the test turns the spot light on those data centers that are headed towards a potential resource contention.

Target of the Test: A RHEV Manager

Agent running the test: A remote agent

Output of the test: One set of results for every data center configured on the RHEV manager being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed.


The host for which the test is to be configured.


The port at which the specified host listens. The default port is 8443.

RHEL MGR User and RHEL MGR Password

To pull out the desired metrics from the RHEV manager, this test has to be configured with the privileges of a user who has been assigned the RHEVMUser role. Specify the user name and password of this user in the RHEL MGR User and RHEL MGR Password text boxes, respectively.

Confirm Password

Confirm the RHEL MGR Password by retyping it here.

RHEL Manager Domain

Specify the domain to which the RHEV manager belongs. By default, internal is displayed here.


If the RHEV manager to which the eG agent should connect is SSL-enabled, then set this flag to Yes. If not, set it to No.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
Measurements made by the test
