Basic Configuration

In this article

    The monitoring criteria for this configuration are:

    • 1 vCenter Server will be connected.
    • All clusters, hosts and VMs will be monitored.
    • High-availability data collection backend is not required.

    In this example, it is assumed that all Veeam MP for VMware back-end components have been installed on a single Management Server as described in the Installation Guide, section Single-Server Installation. This deployment scenario is suitable for evaluation, proof-of-concept and monitoring of a small or medium environment (less than 500 VMs). In this case, a single Collector server can accommodate the monitoring load, and collection redundancy is not required.


    To monitor a larger environment, simply add (install and register) additional Collectors to the configuration below.

    For more information on how to deploy additional Collectors, see the Installation Guide.
