Monitoring Vmware

Hello!

There is:
- HP OM v 9.00 on a server running Windows Server 2008 r2.
- HP Operations Smart Plug-in for Virtualization Infrastructure v 2.00.
- OMW agent version 11.10 installed on vMA v5.1.
- VMA v5.1 - Suse linux 11 x 64, for monitoring virtual infrastructure.
- VMA is connected to the management server OMW
- On vMA connected ESXi 5.1 hosts (using vifp addserver <ESX host>).
- On virtual machines installed Vmware tools

question:
- Why in the OMW console displays ESX Hosts as hosts that are monitored by SNMP? So it should be?
- Why in the console OMW ESX Hosts will not appear in "Services"?
- Why are not shown in the console Virtaul machines OMW, which is connected to the host?

Please use plain text.

Re: Monitoring Vmware

With the VISPI, it has the ability to add Guest VM's as SNMP nodes so that messages can be mapped to those guests.  If you have an OM agent on your guests already, this is not needed.  The AUTO ADDITION SETTINGS policy, discussed in the User guide is what controls this. 

 

The ESX hosts should show up in services.  They first place to check is using ovcodautil on the node and make sure there are BYLS metrics for those hotsts.   Once that is verfiied make sure you hav deploye the SI-SystemDiscovery and VI-Discovery policies.

Check is using ovcodautil on the node and make sure there are BYLS metrics for those hotsts with command :

ovcodautil -dumpds scope | grep BYLS - on vMA?

Policy inventory on vMA (see attach file)

 

In processes vMA I don't see "viserver", to run the command "kill -9 <pid of viserver>"

Re: Monitoring Vmware

Yes run the ovcodautil command you have listed.  Does it produce any output.  You cna see what viserver is doing by looking at /var/opt/perf/status.viserver

Re: Monitoring Vmware

As per support matrix (and swconsult), vMA v5.1 is not yet supported by Virtualization SPI.  Just saying.
