SolarWinds Virtualization Manager Dashboard

This must be something in a version beyond v7.1, which is what we are using currently. If it is a feature in our current version, I have not built our dashboard to reflect that, and cannot really perceive a situation where I would use that or find value in that.

To be able to see everything on a single pane of glass is crucial to maintaining and understanding your virtualization environment. To be able to see which VM is consuming more memory than it should, to seeing the overall health of your environment allows you to be proactive.

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager Dashboard

PerfStack is an interesting feature. The beauty of the feature to taking statistics from the various Orion modules, VMAN included, and graphing them against other metrics that may not be immediately linked. This gives admins a tool to pull together data based on their experience and knowledge of their environment, not just what the technology says is related. Have a DB that supports transactions that occur through a web cluster on a VMware environment that travels through an F5? If you had DPA, NPM, and VMAN you can graph the relevant throught-put, IOPS, and transaction rate on a single page that allowed you to drill own, roll back in history, and generally revel in your time-series data awesomeness!

We're yet to use this feature in full, it would be unfair to give a positive or negative reflection until we have used the product.

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager Dashboard

As a system Engineer, I used to customize the dashboard to view red flagged VMs and attend to the issues proactively.
This capability has increase the uptime of applications and services running on the virtual servers. Monitoring in almost real time a very large number of vms is only possible through such an efficient and flexible dashboard and it resulted in increased uptime for business critical services.

The core of SolarWinds Orion is it's flexibility. PerfStack is a perfect example. You can construct your own graphs of related metrics, and have a view of exactly what you want to see. From the VMAN perspective, you can drag host, guest, and application metrics together to paint a picture of application performance over time, quickly and simply, and share this dashboard with other Orion users.

This is not only a fantastic troubleshooting tool, but also allows users to create views of what is important to them, without the need to click between multiple different pages to get the different metrics.

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager Dashboard

this is something that really lets you dive in to the environment and look at how you are performing, where trouble exists, how you should plan for the future, and what is the real cause of issues. We were so excited to see this feature as it performs well and is a key part in our success.

The ability to customize dashboards by drag and drop is a valuable feature across all SolarWinds products. We are able to create custom views which display only the information relevant to the specific viewer(s). The dashboards are clean and easy to navigate for the average viewers.

The above functionality helped us to create our own custom made charts which are showing the information that we required. One of the benefits as mentioned before is the customisation of the dashboard and alerting. Easy to understand and use as well.

Not past basic graphs however this will be vital in order for us to monitor our applications which have multiple underlying workload dependencies. Providing us with a snapshot view to see for any network utilisation spikes across a specific node or if CPU usage on a VM is causing some CPU ready wait time on another unrelated application server.

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager Dashboard

This feature is one of my favorite across the Orion platform. Being able to pull dissimilar data from any number of sources allows quick and easy identification of issues. We can see if network usage relates to error reporting or user experience. Being able to pull data from network, storage, hardware and user experience allows us to correlate all that data on one page. Even better we can then share that page to users in an easy to understand way. This helps both advanced users and those that aren't familiar with all the IT terminology.

About SolarWinds Virtualization Manager

SolarWinds® Virtualization Manager (VMAN) is an intuitive tool for monitoring, performance management, capacity planning and optimization.

Complete visibility into your environment

Manage both VMware and Microsoft environments - on-premises or in the cloud - with a single tool. VMAN also visualizes how your virtualization connects to application, server, and storage infrastructure for faster troubleshooting.

Clear path to maximize performance

Get insight into the performance, capacity, configuration, and usage of your virtualized infrastructure, including hosts, VMs, clusters and datastores. VMAN delivers recommendations to address active or potential performance issues.

Address virtualization issues efficiently

VMAN can execute a variety of management actions, including power on/off, suspend, reboot a VM, or take and delete snapshots. You can migrate VMs to a different host, and VM disks to a different data store.

Reclaim resources for improved performance

Reclaim virtual resources instantly with VM sprawl alerts and recommendations. VMAN can automatically find idle, stale, and zombie VMs as well as orphaned VMDKs to free up storage space. VMAN can guide you in right-sizing your VMs to recapture CPU and memory resources for further savings.
