Virtualization simplifies IT operations but comes with its own challenges. Health and performance monitoring are inevitable when it comes to monitoring virtual resources. By providing end-to-end visibility of the infrastructure, virtualized monitoring simplifies complex data center operations by slicing the physical server to offer better control over how resources are used. This enables IT administrators to ensure their virtual systems are running smoothly and efficiently at all times.
Popular vendors like VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix, Docker, and KVM provide virtualization.
Virtualization monitoring is the monitoring of virtualized IT environments to ensure that the virtual IT infrastructure and its key performance indicators (KPIs) like hosts, virtual machines, and containers perform optimally.
