Uncover storage issues impacting VMs
Determine whether VM performance issues are originating in the host, fabric, or storage array. Drill down into the specific metrics of each target device for granular detail about current or historical performance issues to pinpoint the root cause of a given degradation. Foglight for Storage Management delivers end-to-end virtual infrastructure monitoring with logical visualization to help identify bottlenecks in the storage topology which are impacting VM performance.
Identify which VMs are affected by storage hardware devices
By identifying which VMs will be affected by maintenance or technical issues with individual storage components, Foglight for Storage Management allows you to plan ahead and take action to prevent downtime for your VMs. You can also see which components are connected downstream all the way to the physical disk, and assess how much I/O is passing through each piece of hardware. This visibility allows virtual admins to alert system administrators when issues, changes, or maintenance events in storage will impact application performance.
Visualize how storage capacity is related to VM performance
Proactive scrutiny of physical storage hardware allows for increased up-time by preventing a lack of available storage on overcommitted storage pools and aggregates. To extract the best mix of performance and efficient utilization from thinly provisioned datastores, it’s critical that a deep view of the underlying subsystems is included in the overall virtualization strategy. Foglight for Storage Management provides the level of granularity at the physical layer to commit resources with confidence.
See a single version of the truth with this single-pane-of-glass solution
Providing a unified and logical end-to-end view of the virtualization infrastructure gives administrators across multiple areas of responsibility the data they need to understand how separate systems impact overall VM performance. Foglight for Storage Management helps identify storage bottlenecks, provides clear reporting related to which VMs will be impacted by storage issues, proves the origin of VM performance issues, and delivers one-click troubleshooting to identify and remediate those problems. This clear and linear visualization from the VM to the physical disk puts an end to cross-team fingerpointing when there’s a performance issue.
