VMWare server monitoring..?



We have just gone to version 7, we have a few VMWare servers in our environment and was wondering what we can do to monitor these.


We have not bought any Control suite licenses which if i am correct provides more in depth monitoring..?


What can be monitored on VMWare and how do we set this up?

Re: VMWare server monitoring..?

If you using the HP version of ESXi or have installed the ESX Agents on ESX Server then you can foundation management and monitoring of VMware host Servers just as you would expect to monitor any Proliant from SIM. You don't need a license for that foundation management.

That should be enough to get you going
