Hi. Welcome to the product tour of Foglight for Virtualization Enterprise Edition 7.0. What you're looking at is the default screen for VMware environment monitoring. We have added a new functionality called optimizer that allows you to optimize the environment by right-sizing the VMs, the resources here, as the memory CPU, et cetera, or to find rest within the storage rest within the environment.
Here what you are looking at is the amount of VMs that are actually using the CPU and memory. And here, we are finding that one of the recommendations that comes out of the system is how much memory to use, and the recommendation for optimizing.
If you have allocated more memory to the VM than it is using, then the system after observing say, that it's not using as much as you have allocated, and you reclaim some of the memory. You can also increase the memories for the VM to function optimally. That way, your VMs will always be functioning optimally.
Applying these optimization recommendations is as easy as just selecting them, and then scheduling those using one of these buttons. You can either reclaim the reclamations right away, or you can say reclaim them later, and then reclaim them based on the calendar and timing clock.
You can also get an email after the reclamations have be done. Once you have selected and once you have scheduled the task on schedule, the system automatically reboot the VM, modify the configuration, and make the VM available once again.
Very simple to use that kind of application. Another way to save money is to actually find the snapshot information, and find the VMs that are using snapshots. That have snapshots open for a long time. Typically, they are that not being utilized. You can actually reclaim the snapshot by again claiming the reclaim now or reclaim later button.
In some of these recommendations, the snapshot doesn't require a reboot. Some do, like applying, changing the memory, or changing the CPU user. Not only snapshots, but again also do abandoned VM images. You can find powered off VMs, Zombie VMs, and then use templates and reclaim all the space that is utilized.
The next one is actually we added support for monitoring VMware vCloud Director environments. In these environments, what we are doing is, we are monitoring VMware environments. And then in this environment, we're actually monitoring the provider virtual data centers. The organizations, the virtual machines that belong to these different resource [INAUDIBLE].
We collect the information from vCloud Directory infrastructure as well as VMware vCenter. And the reason is provided for that. Once you select any of the organizations of the resources, you can actually see how those organizations are performing. When you see the data, you're seeing the data only related as it relates to that particular organization.
How many users are there? How many groups are running? How many running VMs are there, vApps are there? Et cetera, et cetera. All that information is actually put in the related items band, and as well as you can see all the alarms that are associated only with that particular organization, or that particular org VOC.
You also get FAQs and reports that are tied to the vCloud Director. Next stop is the [? Advanced ?] VMware View Support. Here, you're actually monitoring the VMware V infrastructure, the services that are running the connection server, the message server, the gateway servers, the script host, et cetera, et cetera.
All those are monitored, and you can see the state right here. How many sessions are there? How many active sessions are there? Et cetera. All that information is stored here. You can actually also monitor the user sections that are active. And then you can see how where their connections are, and how they're performing.
You also see the number of desktops actually that are being monitored. Now, these desktops can be physical or virtual desktops. It doesn't matter. We can actually monitor both and collect information and provide you with information there.
We can also monitor for pools that are being generated and tell you if they have been over-subscribed or under-subscribed, and actually how to best balance your environment. Again, a visitor driven configuration is provided to make it very easy to use the product.
