Undersized VMs

This report allows you to identify VMs that have less allocated resources such as vRAM or vCPU than they require.

The report collects and analyzes historical performance and configuration over a specified period to deliver recommendations for an optimized VM configuration and resource allocation.

Undersized VMs Tip:

Click a VM in the details table to drill down to VM performance charts that show how CPU and memory usage has been changing during the reporting period.

Use Case

This report uses the specified parameters to identify VMs with  insufficient CPU and memory resources. The report delivers detailed information on detected VMs and suggests recommendations for better resource allocation. You may consider adding the specified amount of resources for the VM, relocating the VM to a more powerful host, or adding more resources for undersized VM.

Report Parameters

Scope: defines a virtual infrastructure level and its sub-components to analyze in the report.

Business View object(s): defines Veeam ONE Business View groups to analyze in the report. The parameter options are limited to objects of the Virtual Machine type.

Interval - Interval Type: defines the time period to analyze in the report. Note that the reporting period must include at least one data collection session for the selected scope. Otherwise, the report will contain no data.

CPU usage, more than: defines the CPU utilization threshold in percent. If the CPU usage value for a VM exceeds the specified threshold, the VM will be included in the report.

Memory pressure, more than: defines the memory utilization threshold in percent. If the memory usage value for a VM exceeds the specified threshold, the VM will be included in the report. This parameter may be applied only to VMs with dynamic memory.

Physical memory, more than: defines the threshold for total VM storage capacity. If VM memory capacity exceeds the threshold, this VM will be analyzed in the report.

Business hours from - to: defines time of a day for which historical performance data will be used to calculate the performance trend. All data beyond this interval will be excluded from the baseline used for data analysis.

Undersized VMs Note:

Veeam ONE Reporter checks whether the CPU ready and Swap out rate conditions are true at the same, and then whether  CPU Usage and Memory Usage conditions are true at the same time (in other words, the conditions in each pair are joined by Boolean “AND”).

Veeam ONE Reporter checks whether a pair of these conditions is true, in other words, pairs of these conditions are joined by Boolean “OR”.
