With ESXTOP or the vCenter performance tab of a VM you can monitor the co-stop metric to check for vSMP performance problems. vCOps can show you that information for all the VMs on a host, a resource pool, a cluster, a vCenter or your complete environment.
In the vSphere client performance tab of a virtual machine you can monitor the CPU Wait time, but it’s counted for every vCPU and no percentage metric is provided. vCenter Operations can solve that problem for you.
vCenter Operations provides different widgets to display the data collected from vCenter, storage systems or other data sources. Using the example of finding out which of the VMs in a vCenter are affected by high cpu ready % values i show you how to use heatmaps, metric graphs and data distribution widgets.
Recently I had to sequence the vSphere Client V5 Update 1 Client with App-V. What normally sounds like an easy task ended up with some trouble…
To create an unattended installation job just download the viclient.
