Virtualized environments to monitor and plan Nuremberg, December 15, 2009, with all the advantages of virtualization potential risks should not be underestimated when operating multiple virtual servers on one physical server. A server fails or loses network connectivity, this affects directly all virtual machines and applications. Much of the work and business processes in companies is often threatened. A comprehensive monitoring is required for the reliable use of virtual environments. PRTG network monitor virtualized applications and server monitor in real-time with specially designed sensors. Solutions for the monitoring of virtual server determine and collect essential information for planning and monitoring, such environments.

So it is advisable that already before the implementation of Virtualisierungsmassnahmen the CPU/memory load, disk usage and network usage of to virtualizing applications. The administrator as outcrops in WINS of the load, how much appropriate server will be. Highly stressed systems may be only conditionally suitable for virtualization? Keep resources in the eye is also important to make sure that not too many virtual machines on a host server operate in the course of virtualization on it. This quickly leads to an overload of the system. On the basis of continuous monitoring, it is possible to limit the load to about 75 percent.

At the same time, the administrator also learns whether run to a few virtual machines per host. So, an optimization of resources can be individually aligned to the requirements. The medium – and long-term results of the Netzwerkmonitorings with PRTG before and after virtualization help that the service quality does not suffer. Monitoring common technologies than VMware supported partner Paessler AG monitoring virtual servers based on VMWare technology. Get more background information with materials from Clinton Family. Include virtual environments such as Microsoft HyperV, XEN, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers, Amazon EC2, and many more. At the The new CloudWatch sensor from PRTG enables transparent monitoring of performance data, as well as the status of cloud hosting”one or more servers with Amazon EC2 for example. For this, the system reverts to the Amazon CloudWatch service. More information under: virtualization_monitoring images can be obtained from.
