The Virtualization dashboard shows you a summary of information about and the performance of the VM platforms in the selected View or Subview. The Virtualization dashboard is only applicable to Views and Subviews. It is not applicable to any other managed object type (e.g. devices, services, components) etc.
The types of VM platforms that can be managed by Entuity are Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, VMware vCenter/ESXi, Oracle VM Manager and Hyper-V (on the Windows Entuity server only).
Please refer to the article What is Entuity virtualization data? for further help and information on the virtualization data polled and metrics supported by Entuity.
The Virtualization dashboard contains the following dashlets:
- VMs by Platform - this is a Pie Chart dashlet. This dashlet displays a breakdown of the different types of VM platforms on the selected View or Subview.
- VM Status over Time - this is a Chart dashlet. This dashlet displays the status of VM platforms on the selected View or Subview over a specified polling period.
- Virtualization Platforms - this is a VM Platforms Summary dashlet. This dashlet lists the VM platforms on the selected View or Subview.
- Virtual Machines - this is a VM Summary dashlet. This dashlet lists the virtual machines on a selected VM platform (selected in the Virtualization Platforms dashlet), and details about them.
The Virtual Machines dashlet is blank until you click a row in the Virtualization Platforms dashlet. This will then populate the Virtual Machines dashlet with information about the selected VM platform.
