  • Helped in keeping an uptime of the resources and meeting the SLA for hardwares
  • Helped in creating capacity reports by simulating requirements
  • Exploring Nuatanix monitoring which would save a lot of money by not investing in a different tool

  • Monitors resources and makes recommendations on changes and upgrades.
  • Sometimes VM seems to over-report on issues. An example would be that we have allocated memory to the VMs to a point at the monitored threshold. Instead of it understanding that was allocated and basing memory utilization on the host based on its available memory (for the host OS), it reports warnings that it is low on memory resources. This should not be an option.

  • It has allowed us to drop several other software packages that were monitoring various facets of our installation, which then allowed us to stop paying for the extra support on those programs.
  • It has increased our reaction time and awareness of problematic issues.

  • VMAN has been used for reports provided to executive-level meetings. These reports showed our growth patterns, allowing for easier decisions on purchasing additional hardware.
  • VMAN has provided a positive impact on allowing for near real-time monitoring of resources, able to pinpoint when services are using more memory than expected, not running at all, or other options as defined.
  • VMAN was purchased to help monitor our VMware platform, the added abilities for AWS allowed us to migrate clients from on-prem to cloud-based with the same views.
