Using Foglight Capacity Director

Foglight® Capacity Director delivers complete virtual infrastructure capacity life cycle management. Get deep insight into your environment, including the availability and estimated time left for CPU, memory, storage, and Input/Output Operations Per Second (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 re-balancing the distribution of clusters and workloads. Model your infrastructure changes (add, move, or remove clusters, hosts, and virtual machines) before deployment, to avoid bottlenecks, performance issues, or reaching the system’s capacity limits.

The Foglight Capacity Director User Guide is intended for:

VMware: users who have been assigned the System Administrator, Advanced Operator, Capacity Management Administrator, VMware Administrator, or VMware QuickView User role.
Hyper-V: users who is a member of a local group administrators.

This section introduces you to the Foglight Capacity Director environment, and provides you with essential information.
