What’s new in the 2.0 version of the vFoglight Storage Cartridge?
There are several new dashboards as well as significant integration into the VMware cartridge.
Once you have configured the vFoglight Storage cartridge and it is collecting properly,
There are several areas you will see improvements to.
1) The additional information in the VMware Cart.
There are two new tabs added to the VMware cart. The “San Topology” and “Data Paths”
These will give you end to end metrics and topology for your network. It will give you a view from the VM across your network to the Storage Array spindle. It will also allow you to drill into detailed data for whichever part of your network is the bottleneck or you would like to examine closer.
2) The Storage Explorer
The storage explorer will allow you to examine, in detail, each component you are collecting from. You can look at the performance of individual network ports, or individual hard drives.
You can see what is impacted if a specific drive or network port fails. You can look at what is competing for resources on Network/Controller ports as well as LUNs.
This video will highlight some of these areas.
