The VxRail platform has extensive monitoring options out of the box with vCenter. Any shortage of resources will be identified as an alert and action can be taken.
To gain additional insights into the infrastructure during our testing, we used vRealize Operations.
By using vRealize Operations, we could get reports across multiple VMs and total system-wide performance easily. The tool also supports analyzing system-wide resource utilization across the cluster including CPU, GPU, networking, vSAN storage, and memory usage that is only possible with a common hyperconverged platform like the Dell Computer Vision for Smart Transportation platform.
The VxRail Manager Health view also displays information about the hardware components of your appliance. A graphical representation of the appliances in your cluster makes it easy to navigate for event and status information. The Health view can be used to view the following:
Appliances in the cluster: View appliance status and information such as ID, serial number, and so forth.
Individual appliance components: Drill down to see the status and information for components such as disks, compute nodes, and power supplies.
With the VxRail Manager plug-in for vCenter Server, all VxRail Manager features are integrated and accessible from the vCenter Server. Users can benefit from these valuable capabilities on a familiar management interface. With the VxRail Manager plug-in, the vCenter Server can manage the physical hardware of the VxRail cluster.
