Configuring Thresholds for VMware ESX and VMs


OpManager out-of-the-box offers monitoring templates for ESX hosts and VMs. The templates help you configure thresholds for multiple ESX hosts and VMs at one shot. For each performance metric you can configure Warning Threshold as well as Error Threshold, and receive proactive alerts if they are violated.

To configure the threshold value and apply the template

  1. Go to Admin-> Device Templates and click on V.
  2. You can find the VMware ESX/ESXi and VMware Virtual Machine templates for the hosts and VMs respectively. Click on the required template.
  3. Click on the monitor name to enable or disable the threshold, and to modify Warning Threshold, Error Threshold and Rearm Values.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Click Modify to modify the template.
  6. Click Apply for the devices to inherit the configurations in the template. Or, click Apply & Overwrite for the devices to remove the old and add the new configurations in the template.

Note: To edit the threshold values of a single ESX host, go its snapshot page and click the Monitors tab under Inventory Details. Click on the Edit icon of a monitor to edit its threshold values.
