VMware Performance Analyzer

Jump to solution

We've been seeing some drops in performance of our two hosts over the past month and I was wondering if there were any products out there, or maybe something built within VMware, that analyzes the performance of the hosts?

All of them monitor both host and VM and will alert you in the event of resource contention or impending contention -

Thanks. Are any of those free or have trial periods? I'd like to see what exactly they monitor and analyze before purchasing anything.

Thanks again.

The Veeam, Quest and VMware provide evaluation periods - CiRBA does not it is more aimed for the large enterprise but IMHO has most powerful hueristics of the group -

Great. Could you give me an example of what some of these do? Are they actually monitoring the hosts and letting you know if the RAM needs expanded, more CPUs added, etc.?
