    Infrastructure Navigator considerations or negative impacts

    CHJamey Enthusiast

      Hello.  I have navigator installed in our test environment and it seems pretty straight forward.  You can turn it on or off through the web client.  It maps alot of the heavy hitter applications by default.  I have a couple questions before I put it into production though.

       

      1.  Our production environment is setup differently than my lab.  There are 3 datacenters in prod and one in my lab.  Does Navigator see all VMs in all datacenters within one virtual center?

      2.  Are there any negative security or performance impacts by enabling navigator?

       

      Thanks for your input!

          Hello CHJamey,

           

          Here are the answers to your questions:

           

          1. Indeed.  The VIN will detect all traffic in the VC it's installed within.  You'll see all 3 datacenters and the lab.

           

          2. There aren't any negative security or performance impacts.  VIN uses a secure channel to detect the services and traffic occurring in your VC, and you'll not feel an impact in your production environment.

           

          Hope those answers help!
