Virtualization and Cloud Management
Virtualization brings tremendous benefits to data centers through server consolidation, ease of provisioning and deployment, and the standardization of hardware.
For this reason data centers are witnessing rapid adoption and proliferation of VMs in their IT infrastructure.
AccelOps cuts through the inevitable complexity of VM sprawl and contention, dynamic resource allocation, and the multiple layers of application, OS, ESX, vSwitch and storage. Our VMware monitoring solution provides a coherent and comprehensive view of your virtualization infrastructure, allowing you to quickly drill down to the root-cause of performance, availability and security problems.
The AccelOps Solution
Scalable Multi-Virtual Center, Multi-Host VMware Monitoring
AccelOps can support multiple virtual centers, can handle hundreds of physical servers, and thousands of VMs. Our VMware monitoring solution integrates with the powerful VMware native API to collect performance metrics for all layers of the VM hierarchy.
Auto Discovery of the VMware Membership Hierarchy
During the discovery of virtual Centers, AccelOps VMware management solution retrieves the entire VMware membership hierarchy including data centers, clusters, ESX hosts, VMs and resource pools and the relationship between these components.
Faster and Accurate VM Discovery and Performance Monitoring
AccelOps uses a high-performance, multi-threaded monitoring framework and optimized VMware APIs that can collect data and performance metrics from thousands of VMs and hundreds of hosts in minutes.
Performance Metrics for each Layer of VMware
AccelOps pulls, stores, trends and cross-correlates performance metrics such as CPU, Memory, Network Interface, Disk I/O, and datastore utilization on Cluster, ESX Host, VM and resource pool levels.
Customized Virtualization Dashboards
Customized virtualization dashboards show the detailed health of cluster, ESX Host, VM and resource pools with trends and configuration settings, as well as a high level health summary of all the ESX and VMs for Datacenters and Clusters. With Top VM and ESX reports, it's very easy to pinpoint the issues at Datacenter or virtual center levels.
Monitoring VMware vCenter Server
The administrator can monitor the vCenter Server's health including performance, availability and security of the OS, statistics and status of the application itself.
Synthetic Transaction Monitoring for Applications
AccelOps can monitor the transaction time of different applications running in the virtualization environment for a wide variety of protocols such as HTTP, SMTP, IMAP, TCP and more.
Server Hardware Monitoring
Accelops can monitor the hardware status of the hosts via vCenter and can alert on battery status, hard disk failure, power supply failure, fan and temperature sensors, and other metrics.
and OSes on VMs
AccelOps is capable of monitoring all operating systems such as Windows, Linux, Unix and Netware and wide variety of business applications such as DNS servers, Exchange, Active directory, IIS servers, web servers and custom built applications. It can also monitor all the major databases such as Oracle, MS SQL, Sybase, psSQL etc.
Benefits of AccelOps VMware Monitoring
The AccelOps VMware monitoring solution allows the administrator to gain the following crucial views into their server infrastructure:
- Operating system perspective view - the system utilization (CPU, memory, disk, network) and application status and utilization (via SNMP, WMI etc)
- VMware Guest OS Perspective – what host the VM is running on, which resource pool it belongs to, and statistics on performance (via VMware SDK)
- VMware ESX Host Perspective – what guest it's running, statistics, and resource usage on each guest (via VMware SDK)
- End-to-end response View – using the synthetic transaction-monitoring feature the user can effectively measure the end-to-end response time of critical applications
AccelOps VMware monitoring provides the following key benefits:
- Faster root-cause analysis: better visibility and deeper understanding of the shared resources across the complex virtual, physical, network and cloud infrastructure, which helps to proactively detect problems and perform faster root-cause analysis
- Improved resource utilization - with an integrated view into your entire virtual infrastructure, you can optimize the resources within the virtual environment
- Improve application performance and availability by increasing problem diagnosis in the virtual environment

Virtualization Review Magazine: Logan Harbaugh, July 19, 2010
"Management apps such as VMware vCenter and Microsoft System Center Operations Manager... offer a limited ability to monitor anything other than VMware or Microsoft products, respectively, and pricing that can escalate quickly with many servers... (AccelOps) real benefit comes from being able to monitor all the hardware and software involved in delivering a particular business service, not simply monitoring VMs... with its ability to greatly facilitate finding and diagnosing network problems -- along with its abilities to monitor trends over extended periods of time in order to isolate potential problems and generate alarms when any part of an extended infrastructure begins to fail -- the product can save a lot of time and allow fewer people to manage more systems."
