If monitoring the performance of business critical applications is indisputable, then so is monitoring the status of the hardware on which these applications run. Often, servers develop critical problems without warning, resulting in expensive hardware repairs. And so, keeping an eye on the status and performance of your servers hardware component is critical, so that server downtimes can be minimized.
How can you know if your computer is operating outside of safe parameters before overheating and voltage issues?
Applications Manager supports monitoring of the VMware ESX/ESXi server hardware sensor information. The metrics monitored will aid the IT administrators to track and fix a hardware problem proactively. Monitoring details like the health of processors, failure of any physical or logical drive, cooling units/fans and current voltage will help narrow down the issues caused due to a malfunctioning hardware component, ultimately resulting in a well run application and thus boost customer satisfaction.
Applications Manager monitors hardware details of the VMWare ESX server which includes the metrics like power, fan, temperature sensors and the health status of the processors and memory. Power, fan and temperature sensor reading is monitored in watts, percentage and degree Celsius respectively.
