VMware Monitoring

VMware Monitoring is the process of monitoring your VMware environment, and locating the source of potential issues using various performance metrics without any agent. Keep track of CPU, memory, storage, network, and disk usage for every VMware resource to avoid unexpected issues and ensure proper capacity planning. Detect anomalies well in advance and can also forecast future trends using the Site24x7 VMware monitoring tool.

Start monitoring up to 10 ESXi hosts/VMs/datastores/resource pools for just $9 per month.

VMware performance monitoring

Total visibility into your vSphere environment

vCenter icon

Stay on top of your CPU, memory, disk, and network metrics. You can also obtain details about the associated data centers, clusters, and ESX/ESXi hosts.

ESX/ESXi icon

Monitor the CPU, memory, network, and disk utilizations, latencies, read-write rates, hardware sensors, along with the inventory details of the associated VMs and datastores.

VM icon
Virtual Machine

Keep track of CPU, memory, and disk utilization, and data transfer to and from a virtual machine (VM), all agentless. Additionally, you can view the VM space split up in associated datastores.

View different storage and latency metrics that help with planning storage requirements and space distribution. You can also view the complete space split up including snapshots.

Monitor VMs that are powered on or off, CPU and memory reservations and limits, and child resource pool metrics to avoid resource contention in CPU and RAM.

Manage space requirements by tracking the age and size of individual snapshots, their impact on the associated datastores, and avoid VM performance issues.

Why monitor VMware resources?

VMware offers an enterprise-level virtualization and cloud computing tool that enables organizations to manage data centers and desktop applications at different levels of their hierarchy. Any amount of unavailability or performance degradation in a VMware environment can be costly, taking a toll on the entire business. Monitoring VMware is important to assess resource usage, avoid resource contention, understand the performance of associated resources, troubleshoot issues, and receive timely alerts to avoid failures.

Comprehensive VMware monitoring tool to manage your VMware resources

Automatically discover and map your entire vSphere environment, from data centers to VMs, in real time. Get a complete performance management console for your entire server infrastructure. Monitor different CPU, memory, disk, and network metrics from time to time to understand how each component is performing. Obtain performance metrics at the host level, VM level, and guest OS level, and correlate them for complete VMware performance monitoring. Avoid resource contention and optimize resource allocation so you can ensure your capacity planning is also accurate.

Monitor the health of VMware hardware

Troubleshoot problems with hardware health

Monitor the health of ESX/ESXi host hardware components such as CPU processor, memory, fan, temperature, voltage, power, storage, battery, and Watchdog with threshold settings and alerts.

Assess datastore performance

Analyze I/O performance metrics by measuring latency and read and write speeds for every host and VM connected to the datastore. Identify whether you have too many VMs or poor disk performance.

Identify top Vms that use datastore
Avoid resource contention by monitoring VMware resource pools

Avoid resource contention

Identify the root cause of memory contention with granular memory information like reserved memory and used host memory. Get insights on the resource pools and VMs that use up your resource pool's memory to avoid resource contention.

Monitor CPU, memory, and network usage

Measure active CPU and memory usage for each guest VM, and reduce memory size to free up unused memory for other VMs. Identify your network performance by monitoring network usage and bandwidth at the host and VM levels.
