Threshold and Availability Profiles for a Nutanix VM Monitor

Once a Nutanix VM is successfully added to your Site24x7 account, you can create a threshold and availability profile. You can configure threshold conditions for different metrics so the alarms engine can determine if the Nutanix VM needs to be declared Critical, Trouble, or Down if any of these conditions are breached. You can also configure the thresholds at the child-level.

Read on the learn how to:

Add a threshold and availability profile

  1. Log in to your Site24x7 account.
  2. Click AdminConfiguration ProfilesThreshold and Availability.
  3. Click Add Threshold and Availability on the Add Threshold Profile screen.
  4. Specify the following details:
    • Monitor type: Select Nutanix VM monitor from the drop-down list.
    • Display name: Provide a label for identification purposes.
  5. From the drop-down menu, choose the desired metrics for which thresholds need to be configured. Enter a value specific to the unit, and set the threshold conditions (<, <=, =, >, or >=) and the monitor state (Critical, Trouble, or Down) next to each metric. You'll receive alerts when these threshold conditions are violated.
  6. For Nutanix VM monitors, you can configure thresholds for the following metrics:
    • General thresholds: CPU usage, CPU ready time, memory usage, and disk/physical usage.
    • Storage container thresholds: Storage space used, free storage space, I/O bandwidth used for controller VM-serviced requests in the container, current I/O operations per second for the container, and average I/O latency for controller VM-serviced requests in the container.
    • Virtual disk thresholds: I/O bandwidth used per second for controller requests in the virtual disk, average I/O latency for controller requests in the virtual disk, current I/O operations per second for the virtual disk, current read I/O operations per second for the virtual disk, and current write I/O operations per second for the virtual disk.
    • Virtual NIC thresholds: Rx rate, Tx rate, Rx packets, Tx packets, Rx packets dropped, Tx packets dropped, error Rx packets, and error Tx packets.
  7. Click Save. The threshold and availability profile created for the Nutanix VM monitor will be automatically listed on the Threshold and Availability screen, along with any profiles you've already created.

Edit a threshold and availability profile

  1. Go to AdminConfiguration Profiles > Threshold and Availability.
  2. Click the profile you'd like to edit.
  3. Edit the necessary parameters in the Edit Threshold Profile window.
  4. Click Save.

Delete a threshold and availability profile

  1. Go to AdminConfiguration Profiles > Threshold and Availability.
  2. Click the profile you'd like to delete in the Threshold and Availability screen.
  3. This will redirect you to the Edit Threshold Profile window.
  4. Click Delete.

Associate a threshold profile with a Nutanix VM monitor

  1. Go to NutanixNutanix VM.
  2. Click the hamburger icon next to the desired VM monitor and click Edit.
  3. In the Edit Nutanix VM window that opens, under Configuration Profiles > Threshold and Availability, choose a Threshold Profile from the drop-down menu. You can also add a new profile and click Save.
