Projected Memory Usage view

This embedded view is part of the Resource Utilization > Clusters view. To display this view, click the Clusters tab in the Resource Utilization view, and select a cluster from the Cluster Name table.

This view displays memory utilization metrics on the selected cluster.

Utilization: This chart shows the actual memory usage.
Capacity: This chart shows the total memory capacity.
Capacity Changes: Shows the changes on memory capacity after including planned changes.

Projected Storage Usage view

This embedded view is part of the Resource Utilization > Clusters view. To display this view, click the Clusters tab in the Resource Utilization view, and select a cluster from the Cluster Name table.

This view displays storage utilization metrics on the selected cluster.

Utilization: This chart shows the actual storage usage.
Capacity: This chart shows the total storage capacity.
Capacity Changes: Shows the changes on storage capacity after including planned changes.

Projected Storage IOPs Usage view

This embedded view is part of the Resource Utilization > Clusters view. To display this view, click the Clusters tab in the Resource Utilization view, and select a cluster from the Cluster Name table.

This view displays storage Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) utilization metrics on the selected cluster.

iops: This chart shows the actual storage IOPs in the unit of connections per second (c/s).
Usage Changes: Shows the changes on storage IOPs usage (in c/s) after including planned changes.

 

 

Scenario Modeler Tab

The Scenario Modeler view is intended to rebalance the workload among virtual centers or datacenters, to achieve optimal resource utilization. The balance metrics include CPU utilization, Memory utilization, and Storage Capacity utilization. A metric is defined as ‘balanced’ if the resource utilization is averagely distributed across all clusters and standalone nodes; otherwise this metric can be regarded as ‘non-balanced’. Foglight Capacity Director provides two methods to help you optimize the use of clusters resources, by using the Scenario Modeler view:

Optimal Placement: Automatically rebalances the workload from clusters, by using an automatic algorithm that calculates and recommends the optimal distribution of virtual machines across clusters.
Manual Placement: Manually rebalances the workload from clusters, by moving virtual machines between clusters.
NOTE: Results populated in the Scenario Modeler view are impacted if the HA policy is enabled in a virtual center.

The left side of the Scenario Modeler view includes the Planned Changes pane and the right side is the Scenario Modeler pane that walks you through the placement procedure.
