VMware monitoring FAQs

1. Is the VMware Monitor a separate download?

No, you will just need to download OpManager. The VMware Monitor is built-in with the product but to use it after the evaluation period, you will need to purchase an appropriate license.

2. Is vSphere monitoring supported by OpManager’s VMware Monitor?

Yes it is supported. The following servers are supported out-of-the-box: vSphere/ESX4, ESK4.1, ESX4i, ESX 3.5 and ESX 3.5i servers.

3. Can the VMware Monitor recognize VMotioned VMs?

Yes, VMotioned VMs are automatically mapped and reported against the latest ESX servers they are present in.

4. Why can’t I monitor my VMware servers using SNMP?

The SNMP-based data got directly from the VM instances will not also be as accurate due to the intervening hypervisor layer that manages resource allocation over VMs. And, VMware does not expose data via SNMP in the ESXi servers. Also, for the other ESX servers, the minimal data thus obtained does not justify the tedious configurations that one has to go through to get SNMP working.
