Are Operations Manager lite and Virtual Health Monitor completely different products or can you apply the free licenses for both to either one or do you need two separate appliances?
Operation Manager Lite and Virtual Health Monitor both use the same underlying appliance but each has a different licences key to expose different functionality.
OML will help you see the decisions VMTurbo makes in a sub-set of your environment (1 vCenter cluster with <= 4 hosts) and the risks/alerts in the rest of the environment. VHM highlights the risks across the entire environment with some added dashboards and reports.
ok thanks for the quick response.
OML is more of a trial then?
There is no time limit on OML but it is best to use in a lab environment where you are tying to see the value of new technology vs. for your production workloads.
thanks for the info Ben
i take it with the free version of Virtual Health Monitor your not able to edit any of the settings that VMTurbo measures against.
For instance its showing that our arrays are suffering from Storage Access Congestion when in actual fact they arent, the settings for how its measuring need to be adjusted for those arrays to show the correct results. Are these settings only available under the Policy's tab?
That is correct, in VHM (and OML) we don't expose the ability to change the settings under the policy tab.
