Overview

This article details the available criteria for creating Static or Dynamic groups in Turbonomic. In Turbonomic, Groups assemble collections of resources for Turbonomic to monitor and manage.

 

Turbonomic ships with some groups already defined. With Group Management you can also create your own groups. Turbonomic supports two custom-grouping methods: 

  • By criteria — You create dynamic groups that are defined by specific search criteria. You can group services according to naming conventions (all VM names that start with “ny”), resource characteristics (all physical machines with four CPUs), or other criteria such as time zone or number of CPUs You can create a group with as many as three separate criteria. These groups are dynamic because Turbonomic updates the group as conditions changes. You can use Regular Expressions (regex) to locate specific resources, please see examples here.
  • By manual selection — You create static groups by selecting the specific group members.

 

For more information on Group creation please visit the Group Management section in Turbonomic’s Documentation or visit this GC article on Creating Custom Groups.
