Vmware-Monitor for Xymon (VMX)intro | features | requirements | license | screenshots | downloadVmware-Monitor for Xymon (VMX)
is an extension/addon for the Xymon systems- and network-monitoring system <http://www.xymon.com/
> (formerly named Hobbit, the open-source successor of the big-brother monitoring system <http://bb4.com/
>) providing a complete monitoring of a virtual environment based on VMware ESX without installing additional software on the monitored hosts.
This monitoring includes tracking of the CPU- and RAM-usage for each running virtual machine, an overview for each VMware-host and a one-click overview for all monitored VMware hosts. For each indiviual VM there is also a status page generated that provides additional information about hat VM (like vmware-tools status, number of VMDKs and vCPUs, ...).
Started and stopped VMs are also recognized as are moves of VMs between hosts (no matter if that move was initiated manually, by vMotion or an other mechanism).
The results are displayed in five additional status-columns on your Xymon webinterface. These columns are hyperlinked so that it is very easy to navigate back and forth in the "dependency-tree" of your virtual environment.
- supports VMware ESX 3.5/ESXi 3.5, ESX 4.0/ESXi 4.0 (vSphere), ESX 4.1/ESXi 4.1
- VMware-server-2.0.x supported with restrictions
- no modification on VMware hosts needed (no support/warranty implications)
- uses offical method provided by VMware (again: support-friendly)
- tracking of VM movements between VMware hosts
- tracking of started/stopped VMs
- overview-page for each VMware host along w/ it's status and the currently running VMs
- one-click overview of the complete VMware environment with:
- total number of VMware hosts
- total CPU avail/used
- total RAM avail/used
- number of VMs running
- number of vCPUs running
- software version/patch-level for each VMware host
- perfect integration with Xymon
- central configuration of VMware-monitoring on the Xymon server
