Oracle VM Server Monitoring


OVM - Overview

Oracle VM (OVM) is a self-contained virtualization environment powered and designed by Oracle to provide a lightweight, secure, server-based platform for running virtual machines. ManageEngine Applications Manager provides comprehensive performance metrics to monitor your Oracle VM servers and their guest virtual machines, and helps you ensure they are performing well at all times.

Applications Manager connects with Oracle VM servers through standard APIs and determines the health status as well as the performance of the host servers and their corresponding virtual machines. It provides a single console to monitor physical, virtual and cloud components of your IT infrastructure.

Monitored Parameters

Go to the Monitors Category view by clicking the Monitors tab. Click on Oracle VM Server under the Virtualization table. Displayed is the Oracle VM server bulk configuration view distributed into three tabs:

  • Availability tab gives the Availability history of the Oracle VM server in the past 24 hours or 30 days.
  • Performance tab gives the Health Status and events for the past 24 hours or 30 days, some key performance indicators of the Oracle VM server such as CPU Utilization and Memory Utilization along with heat charts for these attributes.
  • List view enables you to perform bulk admin configurations and displays all the Oracle VM servers along with an overall idea of their availability and health status. 

Click on the monitor listed in the Availability tab to view detailed performance metrics of the OVM server. These metrics are categorized into four different tabs for easy understanding.
