This report is designed to track VM availability, by reporting on the monitor Veeam VMware: Virtual Machine Uptime Monitor.
For VMs with VMware Tools installed, the monitor will track the status of VM Tools, showing true availability of the virtualized OS. If VMware Tools is not installed, then the power state of the VM will be tracked.
The report can be used to track and confirm the uptime of virtualized workloads, for reporting in Service Level agreements, downtime and outage analysis and so on.
In this example, the report allows you to identify VMs whose uptime was less than 90% during this month.
To run this report:
- From the From list, choose This month > First day. From the To list, choose Today.
- In the Unhealthy States list, choose states that you consider unhealthy (for example, Critical, Warning and Unmonitored).
- In the SLO (%) field, type 85.
- From the Sort By list, choose Virtual Machine Names.
- Click Run to view the report.
If you use daily aggregation, mind that with default data grooming and aggregation settings, the current date may not have a datapoint in the data warehouse. In this case, the object will be marked Unmonitored for the current day, which means the object will have downtime. For more accurate reporting results, you can exclude the current day from the reporting period.
The report output below shows Up/Down time in absolute values and percentage.
The green graph on the chart will represent healthy states, the red graph will represent unhealthy states. The SLO bar will be highlighted pink or grey, according to the following rule:
- Grey: The percentage of time when the VM was in a healthy state is above the SLO (%). That is, the VM was in a healthy state more than 85% of time during the reporting period.
- Pink: The percentage of time when the VM was in a healthy state is below the SLO (%).That is, the VM was in an unhealthy state less than 85% of time during the reporting period.
You can click a SLO bar to drill down to uptime details for the VM for the week.
