Virtualization comes with a wealth of needed configurations, along with the benefits delivered by isolation of virtual machines. More often than expected, a virtualized environment is not properly configured, and non-optimal configurations lead to resources waste, poor consolidation ratio, uncertain SLA compliance.
Specifically and among several other aspects of virtualized environment, Eco4Cloud Troubleshooter monitors the following critical parameters:
- Virtualization platform SLA compliance
- Host, virtual machine and storage health status
- Host remote switch-on ability
- VM hot migration ability
- VM optimal access to storage
- Network accessibility for VMs
- Resources availability
- VM virtual devices and controllers
and several other aspects of virtualized environment.
Eco4Cloud Troubleshooter continuous monitoring of the virtualized infrastructure highlights critical settings among well-known virtualization platform configurations. Such list is ranked by severity, and is useful to run a specific risk analysis, which is preparatory to other steps of service continuity management. It is also useful for root-cause analysis and return-to-normal operations during incident/problem management.
