This widget shows top or bottom infrastructure objects for the selected performance metric.
This section provides step-by-step instructions that will help you understand how to use the Traffic Light widget. Consider the following example:
You need to analyze the number of running VMs on hosts and make sure this number does not exceed 15.
In a dashboard, click to add a new widget and follow the next steps:
|1.||At the Template step, choose Veeam > Veeam Traffic Light Widget.|
|2.||At the General Properties step, specify widget display name and description.|
|3.||At the Scope and Counters step, choose what infrastructure objects will be included in the widget scope and what counter should be analyzed:|
|•||In the Select a group or object field, choose the VMware vSphere Hosts.|
|•||In the Select a performance counter (Object/ Counter/ Instance) field, choose VMHost / vmActive / _Total.|
|4.||At the Time Range and Results step, leave the default interval settings. |
|5.||At the Display step, specify traffic lights color settings. |
Select the Use warning (yellow) and critical (red) thresholds for the bar color check box. In the Warning field, type 10; in the Critical field, type 15.
As a result, the widget will show hosts sorted by running VMs:
|•||Hosts with more than 15 VMs will be highlighted with Red|
|•||Hosts with 10 to 15 running VMs will be highlighted with Yellow|
|•||Hosts with less than 10 running VMs will be highlighted with Green|
Veeam MP for VMware also allows you to configure the thresholds for predefined Top dashboards. For details, see Top Dashboards.
