Virtualization introduces dynamic dependencies between physical machines and virtual machines (VMs) and between VMs. These dependencies add complexity to monitoring and management of virtualized infrastructures to ensure service performance and business continuity.
For virtualization initiatives to be successful, it is critical that end-users see the same, or better, performance from virtual infrastructures as they had experienced with physical infrastructures.
With multiple VMs on a single Oracle VM server, a single malfunctioning application on a VM can degrade the performance seen by applications hosted on the other VMs that share the underlying resources of the physical machine. To troubleshoot this infrastructure, a successful monitoring solution needs to interpret these interdependencies correctly. Further, the ability to migrate VMs from one physical machine to another only increases the complexity and performance monitoring challenge.
eG Enterprise is a comprehensive solution for monitoring and managing all aspects of the Oracle hypervisor and the guest VMs, whether the infrastructure is used to support server or desktop applications. To enable administrators to control the user experience in virtualized infrastructures, eG Enterprise provides the industry’s only virtualization-aware service topology mapping and automatic correlation. Administrators can see the applications involved in supporting their business service, the mapping of applications to virtual machines (VMs) and the dependency of VMs on physical servers. By correlating the performance of applications, VMs and Oracle VM servers, eG Enterprise enables administrators to rapidly identify bottlenecks and to right-size their infrastructure for peak performance. Administrators can now monitor the virtual infrastructure not as a silo but as an integral component of the overall business service infrastructure.
With eG Enterprise, administrators can not only determine if specific Virtual Machines (VMs) are consuming resources, they can also drill down to determine which applications are taking up resources. Coupled with the ability of the eG Enterprise Suite to monitor 180+ applications, including Citrix, Red Hat, IBM, SAP, and others, eG Enterprise provides a true end-to-end solution for monitoring and managing the performance of heterogeneous virtual IT infrastructures.
Here is how the eG Enterprise helps you improve user productivity and the performance of your mission critical business services:
One eG Enterprise license enables you to monitor the Oracle VM hypervisor and all the VM guests. Licensing is per physical server and not based on CPU cores, sockets or VMs.
