Citrix XenServer


Supported versions of Citrix XenServer: XenServer 5.6 and 6.2.


Follow the steps given below to create a new Citrix XenServer monitor:

  1. Click on New Monitor link.

  2. Select XenServer under Virtualization category.

  3. Specify the Display Name of the Citrix XenServer

  4. Enter the Host Name or IP Address of the host where the XenServer runs.

  5. Enter the https Port where the XenServer web service runs. The default port is 443.

  6. Enter User Name and Password for authentication. It should be the credentials of any XenServer Host user with admin privileges.

  7. Select the VM Discovery option. The available options are Discover Pools And All Host, Discover VM Under Host, and Discover VM but do not monitor metrics.

  8. Do not discover: Applications Manager will not discover VMs. You can monitor only XenServer Host and its performance.
    Discover VM but do not monitor metrics (Will not count for licensing): Applications Manager will discover VMs and monitor its availability. You can also monitor XenServer Host and its performance.
    Discover and monitor VM metrics: Applications Manager will discover VMs, as well as monitor the availability and performance for both XenServer Host and VMs.

  9. Specify the Polling Interval in minutes.

  10. Choose the Monitor Group with which you want to associate the XenServer to, from the combo box (optional). You can choose multiple groups to associate your monitor.

  11. Click Add Monitor(s). This discovers the XenServer from the network and starts monitoring it.


XenServer resource pool discovery

Applications Manager automatically discovers the slave XenServer Hosts under the Resource Pool when adding the Master XenServer Host. Once the Master XenServer host is added, the resource pool will be discovered and added as a monitor group. The user must provide the credentials for the slave XenServer Host and manage the XenServer Host to collect the performance metrics. Adding a Slave XenServer Host is equivalent to a standalone XenServer Host and Applications Manager will not determine the master and other slave XenServer Hosts.
