Free performance monitoring for VMware™ and IBM Power Systems™

5.01

It contains a few fixes of version 5.00:
  • VMware: vmotion graph legend was wrong
  • IBM POWER: TOP10 did not work
  • OS agent: LAN packet statistics did not work

5.00

It will bring these new features and enhancements:

General

  • Internal user management.
    You are be able to create users and groups in the tool and assign them rights based on ACL rules.
    (visibility of HMC/Servers/LPARs/clusters/VMs).

IBM Power Systems

  • Alerting
    • Configuration GUI
    • Alerting based on OS agent performance data
      (memory utilization, paging, LAN, SAN, SAN IOPS, SAN response time)
    • SNMP trap
  • OS agent data: new LAN packets metric
  • TOP10 page is enhanced about TOP10 tables per IOPS, LAN [MB/sec] and SAN [MB/sec]

VMware

  • Much faster data read from vCenters as real time data is used only
  • No need to set up historical counter levels, all required data is available without any VMware counter changes
  • Newly collected and presented metrics
    • CPU ready: per VM and aggregated graph per cluster
    • Datastore IO latency
  • Resource Configuration Advisor: it runs once a day, analyzes collected data and highlights problems in the environments
  • Custom groups enhanced about additional metrics (Memory, LAN, SAN)
