About Us

Welcome to Foglight Capacity Director

Welcome to Foglight Capacity Director

Foglight® Capacity Director delivers complete virtual infrastructure capacity life cycle management, spanning planning, allocation, optimization, and maintenance. Get deep insight into your environment, including the availability and estimated time left for CPU, memory, storage, and IOPs. Use historical trends to better forecast resource requirements for clusters, hosts, and workloads—and proactively predict and budget for capital expenditures. Optimize resource utilization and reduce operational expenses by rebalancing the distribution of clusters and workloads. Model your infrastructure changes (add, move, or remove clusters, hosts, and VMs) before deployment, to avoid bottlenecks, performance issues, or reaching the system’s capacity limits. Foglight Capacity Director also includes the Foglight Capacity Manager in the VMware and Hyper-V environments.


These Release Notes cover the resolved issues, known issues, workarounds, and other important information about the 5.8.0 release of Foglight Capacity Director. Review all sections before starting installation.
