With VMware vSphere Monitoring, Operations Visibility and Capacity Optimization, you can achieve greater capacity utilization, consolidation ratios and hardware savings while reducing the time required for diagnosing and resolving problems before they impact your entire business.

Fast Problem Resolution

An operations dashboard is supposed to tell you what is happening in your environment, rather than overwhelming you with low-level metrics. With VMware vSphere with Operations Management, you can focus on problem areas that require your immediate attention by using dashboards that show a new kind of super metrics for Health, Risk and Efficiency. Click to drill deeper into applications, clusters, individual virtual machines and data stores. Customize dashboards any way you like and provide role-based access to enable better collaboration with your peers and other teams. Spend less time monitoring and more time optimizing.

Intelligent Groups and Policies

With intelligent groups you can structure your dashboard views the way you want to see them, by application, by department, by name or tag, by configuration type or any other way you like. Group membership is dynamic, which means that a new virtual machine or object matching the group policy in the environment will be added or removed automatically. You can also define specific health, risk and capacity thresholds; alert types and notifications; business hours and many other configuration settings at a group level to prioritize operational activities for business critical applications, production workloads or business units. Being aligned with the business has never been this easy.

Proactive Smart Alerts

Traditional monitoring tools use static thresholds to alert you of every possible CPU or memory level being crossed. In fast-changing virtual environments, these alerts could be false positives and not trigger when they should. vSphere with Operations Management is different because it learns the behavior of your environment and adjusts thresholds dynamically, resulting in 10 x fewer alerts. The alerts become more meaningful, helping you detect bottlenecks and capacity shortfalls before they affect end users. You also see the root cause of an issue by correlating application and virtual infrastructure behavior. No alert storms. No fire drills. No drama.
