Why Monitor SCVMM?

In large virtual environments, without VMM, administrators may have to deploy multiple tools for managing the environment. Administrators may hence be forced to use each of these tools to check for issues in the virtualized environment. This denies administrators a holistic view of the performance and problems in the virtualized environment.

Moreover, SCVMM tracks the status of hosts, studies resource usage by hosts and VMs, and accordingly places VMs on hosts. When the resource demands of the VMs on a host increase, SCVMM automatically migrates the VMs to another well-sized host. Without a monitoring solution in place, administrators will not be able to identify hosts that are unavailable for placement or are resource-starved; nor will they be able to pinpoint resource-hungry VMs on those hosts. Without the status and usage insights, sizing decisions for hosts, VMs, and clusters cannot be taken. Also, at any given point in time, administrators will not be able to tell the location of the VMs.

Monitoring SCVMM using eG Enterprise can help administrators with all of the above. From reporting the composition of the clusters managed by SCVMM, tracking the status of hosts and VMs in the clusters, to monitoring resource usage at the host, cluster, and VM-level, eG Enterprise keeps an eye on the entire managed virtualized infrastructure and rapidly reports issues.
