vSphere Infrastructure

In this article

    The vSphere 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.

    vSphere 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.

    • Datastore 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:

    • Hosts/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.
    • vCPUs/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.
