Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) is an open-source virtualization technology module in Linux that allows its kernel to function as a hypervisor. KVM uses an x86 processor with hardware virtualization extensions and allows the host machine to run multiple guest virtual environments. Given the widespread use of virtual servers among organizations, it's important to have an effective virtual server monitoring system in place to ensure optimal performance from your virtual environments.
Appplications Manager offers proactive KVM hypervisor monitoring that collects detailed insights about the performance of your KVM servers and their associated virtual machines. It connects with the KVM host servers through standard APIs and specific Linux CLI commands, and fetches the health status and performance of the host servers and their VMs in real time.
One of the primary aspects of KVM monitoring is keeping track of the CPU and memory utilization of all associated VMs. Applications Manager's KVM monitor provides one central location where admins can keep track of CPU and memory utilization along with the performance of various virtual machines running within the KVM server. Applications Manager helps monitor the CPU usage individually by their cores, enabling admins to determine the running and consumption status of their CPUs.

A storage pool is a logical storage group that contains a combination of one or more storage volumes, which are virtual disks in different formats. In a business infrastructure where numerous amounts of storage pools and volumes are used in various KVM servers, it becomes essential to employ a KVM monitoring tool to track the performance of these storage pools at a larger scale.
Applications Manager's KVM performance monitoring capabilities enable you to keep an eye on the performance statistics of all the storage pools and their associated volumes by monitoring essential parameters such as health, current pool status, total capacity, free or used capacity,etc. The network interface status is another attribute that can help you identify if network connectivity is contributing to the poor performance of your KVM server. Applications Manager provides essential network details including the number of packets received and transmitted, the rate of data received and transferred, network health, and more.
Gain complete insight into the performance of your KVM servers with the aid of Applications Manager's attribute-wise performance analytics. Predict the future growth and utilization trends of your KVM servers in advance using machine learning-based performance forecasting. Plan load distribution and capacity management for your KVM monitor by identifying whether your servers are working at full capacity or are being underutilized.
With a powerful, integrated console for monitoring, alerting, and performance analytics, Applications Manager is the only one-stop KVM monitoring tool that fits the bill for all your KVM hypervisor monitoring requirements.
