VMware Infrastructure

The VMware Infrastructure dashboard is designed to provide at-a-glance view of configuration of the VMware vSphere infrastructure and to help you assess the overall performance and resource usage efficiency.

VMware Infrastructure Dashboard

Widgets Included

  • Virtual Environment

This widget shows the total number of vCenter servers, clusters, ESXi hosts and VMs in your environment, as well as the number of currently running VMs.

  • CPU and Memory Resources

This widget assesses physical CPU and memory resources installed on ESXi hosts and shows the amount of available resources allocated to VMs.

  • Datastores Capacity

This widget provides information on the number of datastores in your environment, their total capacity, the amount of provisioned and free space left on the datastores.

  • Consolidation Ratio

The widget tracks the amount of virtual hardware placed on physical hardware:

  • Host/Datastore ratio shows the average number of hosts connected to a single datastore.
  • VMs/Host ratio shows the average number of VMs running on a single physical host.
  • VMs/Datastore ratio shows the average number of VMs that store data on a single datastore.
  • vCPU/Core ratio shows the average number of virtual processors operating on a single physical CPU core.
  • Allocation Ratio

The widget tracks the amount of virtual and physical resources allocated to VMs:

  • vCPU allocation ratio shows the number of virtual processors operating on a single physical CPU core (in percentage).
  • Datastores allocation ratio shows the amount of datastore space allocated to VMs (in percentage).
  • Memory allocation ratio shows the amount of physical RAM allocated to VMs (in percentage).
  • Wasted Resources

The widget tracks the amount of over-provisioned resources in your environment, based on data gathered by the Oversized Virtual Machines report:

  • vCPU value shows the total number of provisioned vCPUs.
  • vCPU Wasted value shows the total number of over-provisioned vCPUs. Use this value as a measure of compute resources that you can reclaim and allocate to other VMs.
  • Allocated Memory value shows the total amount of provisioned virtual memory.
  • Memory Wasted value shows the amount of over-provisioned virtual memory. Use this value as a measure of compute resources that you can reclaim and allocate to other VMs.
I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
