What is Virtualization Monitoring ?

Virtualization simplifies IT operations but comes withits 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 datacenter 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 runningsmoothlyand efficiently at all times.

Popular vendors likeVMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix, Docker, and KVM provide virtualization.

Virtualization monitoring is the monitoring ofvirtualized IT environments to ensure that the virtual IT infrastructure and its key performance indicators (KPIs) like hosts, virtual machines, and containers perform optimally.
