vSphere alarm triggers

    In terms of alarms, vCenter 4 has much more to offer than vCenter 2.5.


    There is a whole range of default alarms available when you install

    vCenter 4, and they will give you a very good first shot for monitoring

    your vSphere environment.

    If you’ve never wondered what exactly the default alarms mean, or how to tune them – that’s fine.

    If you’re interested in a bit more detail – read the attached PDF.
