Monitors metrics on VMware hosts.
The VMware Host Health Event Monitor keeps track of various metrics and performance values for your VMware hosts.
This event monitor provides the following options:
Use this option to get alerts if FrameFlow could not contact the selected device.
Use this option to get alerts when CPU usage exceeds the thresholds that you specify.
Use this option to set alerting thresholds based on the number of files found in the directory.
Use this option to get alerts about systems whose disk or partition space is running low. In the option to ignore specified drives, use the following format: "deviceName(C)" (without the quotes). You can use the * character to match multiple devices or drives. For example, use "devicename(*)" to ignore all drives on a device. Use "x*(D)" to ignore the D: drive on all devices whose names start with x. To specify multiple drives to ignore separate them with commas, for example, "device1(G), device2(F)".
Use this option to generate alerts based on how much physical memory is in use on each network device.
Use this option to alert based on the observed ping response time for the device.
This option lets you generate alerts based on the total bandwidth rate for the device. This rate is the sum of all incoming and outgoing bandwidth on all interfaces.
This option lets you generate alerts based on the combined outgoing bandwidth rate of all interfaces.
This option lets you generate alerts based on the combined incoming bandwidth rate of all interfaces.
The default port number of SSH connections is 22. If your servers are using a non-standard port, you can specify it here.
The account that you specify must have view permissions for the VMware REST API or have admin rights.
This event monitor generates the following data points:
|Active Memory||The amount of memory that's currently in use.|
|Available Memory||The total memory available.|
|Available Memory %||The percentage of available memory.|
|Average CPU Readiness||The average CPU readiness, in percent.|
|Average Response Time||The average ping response time.|
|CPU Ready Time||The amount of time the CPU spent in a ready state.|
|CPU Usage||The percentage of CPU that's being used.|
|Space Used||The amount of space that's been used already.|
|Total: Incoming||The total incoming bandwidth for your VMware host.|
|Total: Outgoing||The total outgoing bandwidth for your VMWare host.|
|Total Memory||The total memory for your VMware host.|
|Used Memory||The amount of memory used.|
|Used Memory %||The percentage of memory used.|
