Monitoring VMware Environments

Just as with "real world" IT infrastructures, it is essential to continuously monitor and manage usage of VMware and other virtualized environments. VMware monitoring solutions provide real-time performance metrics and alarms enabling systems and network administrators to manage their VMware-based virtual infrastructure taking into consideration the physical host's attributes as well the performance of the virtual machines.

TechXtend provides VMware monitoring software from a number of leading software companies including VMware, Veeam, Dell Software, Solarwinds and Compuware.
