Network Performance Monitor (NPM) provides extensive monitoring of managed nodes in your environment. Virtual machine monitoring provides general information in NPM. You would need to continue using native VM tools to locate and compile detailed usage metrics, performance, and health monitoring. VMAN monitors and reports this data automatically into NPM VM nodes without using native tools.

Virtualization Manager integration provides:

  • Virtual node (vnode) monitoring without needing to manage VMs as a node
  • Status and information details for clusters, hosts, datastores, networks, and VMs
  • Data details for all VMs in your environment even if not managed
  • Additional VM management tools for monitored VM nodes to power on and off and moving a VM
  • Options to allocate resources and manage VMs through the Orion Web Console
  • Resource utilization and load monitoring for CPU, memory, network, IOPS, and latency
  • Alerts, events, and recommendations for managing VMs and resolving issues

These products work together to provide deeper monitoring and alerting for virtual environments:

  1. Click My Dashboards > Home > Summary.
  2. Expand the All Nodes view to locate and select a VM.

    In this image, hover over the VM syd-esx-01.lab.tex to view additional information.


  3. Click syd-esx-01.lab.tex to open the details page.

    Integrated with VMAN, the node details page displays with virtualization resources and collected VM data. The node page for ESX host syd-esx-01.lab.tex provides additional information including an expandable virtual environment, resource usage, and virtualization alerts.

    The following image displays historical resource usage data for a VM in the ESX host.
