As already mentioned, the eG Enterprise Suite offers the VMware vSphere ESX model for monitoring of those vSphere/ESX servers that have been configured with VMs on which critical server applications (eg., Oracle, WebLogic, IIS, etc.) have been deployed. Figure 1 depicts the vSphere ESX server monitoring model.
