Cartridge for VMware Rules

The Cartridge for VMware includes a number of predefined rules that capture the expert knowledge of our virtualization specialists and are used to monitor the health of your virtual infrastructure. vFoglight allows you to modify these rules or create your own flexible rules that can be applied to complex, interrelated data from multiple sources within your distributed system.

In this chapter, rule descriptions are organized into logical groupings. To see a rule description, select the appropriate grouping from the sections listed below.

This chapter contains the following sections:

Overview of Rules .......................................................................................................................26

Thresholds ...................................................................................................................................27

Reference Guide

Overview of Rules

vFoglight allows you to create flexible rules that can be applied to complex, interrelated data from multiple sources within your distributed system. You can associate several different actions with a rule, configure a rule so that it does not fire repeatedly, and associate a rule with schedules to define when it should and should not be evaluated.

Different types of data can be used in rules, including registry variables, raw metrics, derived metrics, and topology object properties.

There are two types of rules in vFoglight: simple rules and multiple-severity rules. A simple rule has a single condition, and can be in one of three states: Fire , Undefined , or

Normal . A multiple-severity rule can have up to five severity levels: Undefined , Fatal ,

Critical , Warning , and Normal .

Rule conditions are regularly evaluated against monitoring data (metrics and topology object properties collected from your monitored environment and transformed into a standard format). Therefore, the state of the rule can change if the data changes. For example, if a set of monitoring data matches a simple rule’s condition, the rule enters the Fire state. If the next set does not match the condition, the rule exits the Fire state and enters the Normal state.

A rule condition is a type of expression that can be true or false. When it evaluates to true, the rule is said to fire, causing any actions that are associated with the rule or severity level to be performed. You can configure a rule to perform one or more actions upon entering or exiting each state. When a multiple-severity rule fires, an alarm also appears in vFoglight.

See “Introduction to Rules” and “Creating and Editing Rules” in the vFoglight

Administration and Configuration Guide for more information.

Overview of Views

vFoglight displays monitoring data in views that group, format, and display data. The main types are described below.

Dashboards are top-level views that do not receive data from other views. Dashboards usually contain a number of lower-level views. The dashboards supplied with vFoglight, as well as those created by users, are available in the navigation panel.

Lower-level views in vFoglight can be added to dashboards or can be accessed by drilling down from a dashboard. They receive and display data directly from the vFoglight Management Server or from other views. Some views filter or select data that appears in other views in the same dashboard. Some are tree views with expandable nodes for selecting servers, applications, or data.

Virtual Infrastructure View

The vmExplorer Dashboard provides a Virtual Infrastructure View. The Virtual

Infrastructure View is located in the navigation panel at the left of the vFoglight GUI, under the dashboards list.

Purpose

The Virtual Infrastructure View provides an organized view of the various virtual infrastructure objects that are monitored by the VMware Cartridge. It serves as a navigation tool, and it also presents pertinent alarm information.

When you select an object from the Virtual Infrastructure View, all of the views in the vmExplorer Dashboard are updated with information pertaining to that object.

Content and Embedded Views

The Virtual Infrastructure View contains two embedded views: the Topology View and the Hierarchy View.

Within the Topology View, all of the virtual infrastructure objects are organized into a tree using object type (or topology type) containers for branches. The top-level objects in the Topology View are always the VirtualCenters.

Within the Hierarchy View, each VirtualCenter object is organized into a tree that has the same hierarchical structure as the VirtualCenter and displays the objects

(Datacenters, Clusters, Resource Pools, Virtual Machines, Folders, etc.) within the

VirtualCenter as branches.

Mouse-over Status Popups

When you hover the cursor over an object in the Virtual Infrastructure View, you see a popup that provides a summary of the present state of that object.

For more information about the Virtual Infrastructure View, see the chapter titled

“Interacting with the Cartridge for VMware” in the vFoglight Cartridge for VMware
