Determine which hosts are consuming sockets

Updated October 12, 2016


This article describes how to determine socket counts per hosts.


All Virtualization Manager versions


To find out which hosts are consuming sockets

  1. In the Orion Web Console, choose Settings > All Settings.
  2. Under Product Specific Settings, click Virtualization Settings. 
  3. Click the VMWare tab, and sort by the value in the Polling Method column.
    Hosts that use Orion polling are consuming VMAN sockets.



Note: You can also query the database for this information:

select hostname from vim_hosts where PollingSource in ('1','2')

To find out how many sockets per host

Drill down into the node details and look at the Current Hardware Health widget, which shows how many CPUs the host has. The number of sockets consumed equals the number of CPUs the host has.



To find out how many total sockets are being used

  1. In the Orion Web Console, click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Under Details, click License Details.
  3. Under VMAN, see the total number of sockets used.
