Capacity planning dashboards allow you to forecast the resource utilization for Hyper-V infrastructure objects. To calculate future performance values, Veeam MP analyzes historical performance data for the specified period in the past, calculates the performance utilization trend and applies this trend to the forecast horizon.
Capacity Planning dashboards, as with Capacity Planning reports, require an Enterprise Plus license for the Veeam MP.
There are 2 capacity forecast dashboards available in the root Veeam for Hyper-V folder:
- Cluster Capacity Forecast — forecasts how many days remain before the level of CPU and memory utilization in a Hyper-V cluster reaches the specified threshold values.
- Storage Capacity Forecast — forecasts how many days remain before the free space on clustered storage volumes reaches the specified threshold values.
Example screenshot below shows the forecast on the number of days left before the level of free space on storage reaches 5%:
The default configuration of the capacity planning widgets can be customized. For details on changing widget settings, see section Personalizing Veeam Dashboard Widgets.
