What can I see on a VMware hypervisor dashboard?

Follow

VMware hypervisors have their own dashboards with unique information.

This is what’s available on a hypervisor dashboard:

Several tabs are also available for accessing more detail.

See What happens if my collector disconnects?

Device details

Provides you with inventory details about the hypervisor device:

  • IP address(es)
  • Network(s) it belongs to, including access, trunk, and subnet
  • Make and model
  • Serial number
  • Software version
  • Description

To update a device’s details, such as its name, type, or management status, see How do I edit device details? You can also update device details from Discovery  > Manage Devices.

KPIs (key performance indicators)

Located next to the device details.

  • Online Status indicates the last known discovered status (up or down).
  • Current Uptime indicates how long the device has been online. If the device has been offline for longer than a quick reboot, the next time the device is powered on the current update will show as ~1 day.
  • Online Interfaces indicates how many of the device’s interfaces are currently online. Click the number to pull up the list of interfaces that are online. You can filter the list to show only certain interfaces. For more information on filtering, see How to filter data in Auvik.
  • Open Alerts indicates how many alerts are open for the device. Click the number to pull up a list of the alerts. You can filter the list to show only certain alerts. For more information on filtering, see How to filter data in Auvik.
  • Credential status indicates the current status for device credentials, including SNMP, login, WMI, and VMware credentials.

    Status description

    The device isn’t running the services for the credential type.

    Auvik won’t try credentials on the device based on its type (e.g., printer).

    Auvik has the correct credentials for the device.

    Auvik needs credentials for the device.

    Auvik is trying credentials for the device.

  • Total # of vCPU(s) indicates how many virtual CPUs the hypervisor has.
  • Total allocated memory indicates the memory allocated to the hypervisor.
  • Total # of vDisk(s) indicates how many virtual disks the hypervisor has.
  • Total vDisk(s) Capacity indicates the capacity of the virtual disks.

Top interface utilization

Displays the top seven interfaces on the device by transmit utilization percentage for the selected date range. To see the dashboard for a specific interface, click the interface’s row.

Device bandwidth

Displays a graph of the device’s bandwidth and the data that’s being transmitted or received per second. Below the graph is the KPI for the current state of the device. To view more detail about any data point on the graph, run your cursor over the graph line. A tooltip pops up to show you the date and time of the data point, and the bandwidth, transmit, and receive detail at that time.

Device utilization

Displays a graph of the CPU, memory, and disk utilization percentages for the selected date range. Below the graph is the KPI for the current state of device utilization. To view more detail about any data point on the graph, run your cursor over the graph line. A tooltip pops up to show you the date and time of the data point, and the CPU, memory and disk utilization at that time.

Device packets

Displays a graph of the broadcast, multicast, and unicast packets per second for the selected date range. Below the graph is the KPI for the current state of device packets. To view more detail about any data point on the graph, run your cursor over the graph line. A tooltip pops up to show you the date and time of the data point, and the broadcast, multicast, and unicast detail at that time.

More details

Like other device dashboards, the hypervisor dashboard has a number of 

tabs and menus that can be clicked for more detail. In each section, you can filter the list to show only certain details. For more information on filtering, see How to filter data in Auvik.

  • Networks provides a list of all networks associated with the hypervisor. To see the dashboard for a specific network, click on the row for a network.
  • Interfaces provides a list of all interfaces associated with the hypervisor. To see the dashboard for a specific interface, click on the interfaces row.
  • Services provides a list of all discovered services running on the hypervisor. To see all other devices running the same service, click on the row for a service.
  • Alerts provides a list of all alerts that have been triggered for the hypervisor.
  • Notes provides a list of all notes that have been added for the hypervisor. To view note details, click the row for a specific note.
  • Debug provides you with tools to help troubleshoot issues with the hypervisor.
  • OID Monitors provides a list of OIDs that have been mapped to the hypervisoralong with their current values.
  • Virtual machines provides a list of all virtual machines created and their current power statuses. To see the dashboard for a specific virtual machine, click the devices row. *
  • Snapshots indicates the number of current snapshots available for all virtual machines. Click the number to pull up a list of the snapshots. You can filter the list to show only certain snapshots. For more information on filtering, see How to filter data in Auvik.

* If you’re not seeing the Virtual Machines tab on the hypervisor dashboard, check that you’ve added credentials for the hypervisor.

To gather more valuable and accurate data from your virtual environment, we highly recommended you have VMware Tools installed on each virtual machine.
