    Monitoring Virtual Machine activity

    lostmachine Lurker

      I have been assigned a task of monitoring a ESX server with multiple virtual machines installed at any one time. This server is a hosting platform for a software test environment which is used by multiple users with various OS's and applications under test. My issue is that I need visability into the network traffic passing on the virtual network switch infrastructure to resolve networking issues and between the various testbeds. At the moment I use the promiscous port capability of the virtual switch to gather network flows using Wireshark but analysing pcap files is way too slow and time consuming. Are there any virtual appliances out there that make this task possible?
