The concept of web-scale IT has caught up with enterprises that are beginning to grow their IT infrastructure and operations, and the adoption of hyper-converged infrastructure has made it easy to scale with increased flexibility, easier management, and lesser CAPEX costs.
Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform converges computing and storage into a hardware appliance that runs virtual workloads using the native Nutanix Acropolis hypervisor, VMWare vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, or Citrix XenServer. This distributed computing architecture gives the ability to add needed resources on-demand.
As with any hardware infrastructure, Nutanix nodes experience performance bottlenecks, and IT staff needs to keep constant vigil on the hyper-converged framework, identify bottlenecks and fix issues.
Nutanix Prism management software gives monitoring insight into the Nutanix Acropolis hypervisor environment. But Prism is not sufficient for organizations that virtualize their Nutanix infrastructure on VMware, Hyper-V, or XenServer. Plus, it is important to monitor actual application workloads that are running on Nutanix so the application architects and service owners can avoid performance degradation for end-users.
eG Enterprise delivers total performance visibility throughout your Nutanix infrastructure including key components, such as hypervisor, virtual machines, operating system, server resources (memory, CPU, etc.) and storage disks, clusters, and containers managed by Nutanix.
eG Enterprise uses Nutanix REST API to interact with Prism software to collect performance metrics of Nutanix Acropolis hypervisor, the controller VM (CVM) and other virtual machines running on Acropolis. eG Enterprise adopts an agentless monitoring approach leveraging its out-of-the-box integration with Nutanix.
Leverage built-in reports in eG Enterprise to analyze how much resources are being consumed by the virtual machines (outside view of VM), and what application workload and processes are hogging resources within the VMs (inside view of VM). Perform ‘what-if’ analysis and determine how many more VMs can be supported on each host and when you will need to invest in additional Nutanix nodes based on business demand.
Whether you are using Nutanix on the KVM-based Acropolis hypervisor, VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, or Citrix XenServer, eG Enterprise has got you covered.
eG Enterprise specializes in delivering deep performance diagnosis and analytical insights for 180+ packaged applications out of the box. Using its correlative intelligence, eG Enterprise automatically maps and lets you visualize your application delivery stream—from the application to VM to storage clusters. Easy drill-downs and intuitive dashboards allow you to identify bottlenecks in just a few clicks.
Supported applications include Citrix, SAP, Oracle, Siebel, PeopleSoft, SharePoint, Microsoft Dynamics, Exchange, Active Directory, and more. See all supported technologies.
