Unlimited virtual possibilities with Foglight for Virtualization
Gain greater visibility into and simplify the planning and analysis of your storage infrastructure with Foglight for Storage Management. Detect, diagnose and resolve potential issues, from the application through the virtualization layer to the physical disk spindle, to ensure optimal virtual machine performance and availability. Take control of operating expenses and limit capital expenditures by maximizing the capacity of your existing storage during virtualization, consolidation and cloud projects. With complete visualization into storage performance, you’ll spend more time innovating so your users enjoy the best possible application experience.
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 any given degradation. Foglight for Storage Management delivers end-to-end virtual infrastructure monitoring with logical visualization to help identify bottlenecks in the storage topology that impact VM performance.
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 VM downtime. 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 enables virtual admins to alert system administrators when issues, changes, or maintenance events in storage will impact application performance.
Proactive scrutiny of physical storage hardware allows for increased uptime 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, a deep view of the underlying subsystems is critical to the overall virtualization strategy. Foglight for Storage Management will also analyze your storage consumption patterns to estimate when available capacity will be depleted so that you can proactively plan new disk purchases.
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 finger-pointing when there’s a performance problem.

Dell's infrastructure engineering and operations (IEO) team is responsible for managing all of Dell IT's VMs — more than 22,000 of them. These VMs are distributed across 16 virtual centers and nearly 1,200 ESX hosts. Most are on Windows, but some are on Linux. To manage and optimize this large
Execution plans are the first-place database professionals go to tune their query, but they often provide misleading information. The science behind query optimization is knowing what to believe and what to ignore from the execution plan.
Learn Brent’s tips to fix deadlocks. He’ll discuss tables in long transactions and why you need to work through them in a consistent order and touch them as few times as possible; then, he'll rewrite a stored procedure that's having deadlocking problems.
