The monitoring criteria for this configuration are:
|•||2 vCenter Servers should be connected|
|•||For vCenter Server №1 (Production systems):|
|o||All clusters, hosts and VMs should be monitored|
|o||High-availability data collection backend is a requirement|
|•||For vCenter Server №2 (Development/Test systems): |
|o||All clusters and hosts should be monitored|
|o||Virtual Machines should not be monitored|
|o||High-availability data collection backend is not required|
|o||Collection interval of 10 minutes is sufficient |
This example will illustrate a more advanced Veeam back-end configuration, requiring the use of multiple Collectors, monitoring groups, and customizing collection settings.
This example assumes that the following sections in the Installation Guide have been followed:
|•||Single-server installation (to provision the VE Service, UI and one Collector)|
|•||Collector-only installation (repeated twice, to provision two additional Collector servers)|
To predict the number of Collectors required for the monitoring load, use the Veeam MP for VMware Sizing Calculator. For full details, see the Architecture Overview Guide.
