VMware on Topology

Hi all,

 

i have to insert a vmware host using topology form ALM/PC 11

 

When I try to configure the AUT host there are only 2 choices, “windows” and “UNIX” platform.

 

But on VMware host: “ VMware ESX and VMware ESXi are “bare-metal” hypervisors. This means
they may be installed directly on top of a physical server and can be
partitioned into multiple virtual machines.” (from PC11 docs).

 

So it seems that vmware host is neither windows or unix.

 

How can i insert VMware machine using topology?

 

BR

Re: VMware on Topology

Regardless of the type of machine, what communicates PC Server with PC Hosts is the PC Agent which requires an OS to be installed in. As mentioned, you can partioned it into multiple machines, is those machines that will require and OS UNIX or Windows and where the Host component is installed.

Re: VMware on Topology

Hi Mario,

 

so the VMware template on topology is related to the guest machine?

 

The VMware Host is the machine on which is installed ESX sw, with no OS.

 

The guests are the virtualized machines with OS...so the monitors deployed via topology are related to Host or Guest?

Re: VMware on Topology

I think I might have misunderstood you question about topology. Can you provide a screenshot of where you are trying to do this?

Re: VMware on Topology

Hi mario,

 

thanks a lot. I want to understand if this is the right way to deploy a vmware monitor by topology.

 

I am not able to deploy it...

 

My question is: are the input data related to the esx server?

 

from sitescope you need to insert the URL in order to access vmware data:

 

"During initial monitor creation, the new monitor uses the connection URL

configured to access the software and dynamically discover the object

hierarchy and available performance counters. You can select from these

performance counters to determine which measurements SiteScope should

retrieve for reporting server status."

 

but from topology interface (see step2.png) you need only the user/password data. So i am not sure about the data collected by monitor deployed via topology on sitescope.

 

Topology is useful to deploy best practices monitors at once, and i want to deploy those monitor for VMware host and guests hierarchy
