Monitoring Nutanix with OMS – Public Preview
Summary: The Nutanix Monitoring Solution from Comtrade Software now integrates with Operations Management Suite.
Today we're announcing the public preview of the Nutanix Monitoring Solution from Comtrade Software for Operations Management Suite (OMS). It enables monitoring, event analytics, and log analytics for on-premises Nutanix Enterprise Clouds. It extends OMS by:
- Providing historic Nutanix performance metrics like cluster/host/storage/virtual machine (VM) latency, input/output operations per second (IOPS), and resource utilization
- Identifying situations when more solid-state drive (SSD) storage resources must be added to maintain low I/O latency
- Enabling instant identification of Nutanix hosts that run many VMs and identification of hosts that are much less loaded
- Acting as a central point for Nutanix log and event collection and analytics to enable correlation of Nutanix log files across controller virtual machines (CVMs)
The overall Comtrade Software’s Nutanix OMS Solution consists of five solutions (Nutanix Clusters, Nutanix Hardware, Nutanix Storage, Nutanix Virtual Machines, and Nutanix Log and Event Analytics). Each solution provides monitoring and analytics capabilities for individual Nutanix areas. Deploy all of them to get complete Nutanix monitoring and analytics coverage.
