Virtual Volumes Compatiblity Guide Gets A Refresh

Over the last year the number of Virtual Volumes implementations has increased significantly. From a handful of key VVol partners in early 2015 we now have over 150 array models certified for VVols from 15+ partners with more on the way. Given this rapid growth in support for VVols we have heard from customers that the VMware Compatibility Guide for Virtual Volumes needs to be updated to make it faster and easier to use.

In the last blog post I showed you what Object level metrics are and how they could be used, to fast get an idea to of how a VM is behaving. In this one I’m going to focus on what metrics can be used to get a better understanding of how a VM is behaving.

In this part I am going to show you how to use object level metrics, to fast and easily assess if for example a VM is having problems. This is something that would give you a quick indication of this object is having problems that need to be address. This should be looked at before diving into the raw metrics, as this will help you and can guide you in the right direction.

Troubleshooting with vRops part 2: Summary and…

In the first part of this series on vRops, I talked about vRops capabilities compared to the vRops edtion. In this part I will start to dig into how you should start looking at a problem the vRops way. I my self have fallen victim to, all too quickly jumping over to the “all metrics” tab, and start throwing graph up on screen to see if I can find the cause of the issue. The problem with that method is that it is highly inefficient and like looking for a needle in a haystack, it can take quite some time and the result may not have gotten you any closer to finding the problem… Why there are haystacks with needles in them ?

Adding Worker Nodes to vRealize Log Insight

In my pevious post Deploying & Configuring Log Insight I touch on the possibility of adding multiple nodes to scale the total Log Injection Rate and Events per Second, in addition additional nodes will ensure your logging infrastructure is highly available, which is a critical point from a security perspective.
