Resource Management

The VMware performance monitoring dashboard displays the resource usage data in real-time, allowing you to remain updated about the hardware resources used and available at any moment.
In addition, you can see the data about past resource usage and distribution by VMware vSphere VMs, hosts and datastores in the logs.

Improved Load Distribution

Analyze the monitored data to detect resource bottlenecks and remove them by distributing VM loads between VMware hosts. With Monitoring for VMware tools, you are better prepared to anticipate and counter hardware performance issues.
