I know a VM which require some performance tuning. I want know , in which HOST and CLUSTER it is residing. Could you please share the steps. This is urgent.
This information can be obtained if you search for the VM by name with the magnifying glass in the top right of the flash interface. Open the details on the VM name (not the guestload) and it will open a new tab in the UI. The bottom right panel will show you which host it sits on and the utilization of key resources on that ESX server. The top middle panel will display which cluster the VM sits in and whether it is thin or thick provisioned.
Let me know if this helps!
Thanks a lot for the assistance. This helps. If I need to allocate some disk capacity to this VM , how can I see how much do I have in the host and how much is already allocated and how much is free ? So that I can allocate the same to this VM.
Or else if you have any better approach to fix the disk capacity issues.
Sure, you can see this information within the top middle panel of the same view as above. So if you search for the VM, and expand the panel, it will show you a breakdown of partition utilization within the VMDK. In fact, you can enable disk sizing decisions within Turbonomic. If a disk drive begins to fill up, you will receive a decision to increase vStorage. See the GreenCircle article matt.ray wrote here.
I can see only following details. Not sure why ...
sarvagya it looks like you've scoped to a "GuestLoad," which is the placeholder for guest processes running within a VM--not the VM itself. If you are in the view will.searle replied with initially, the left-hand pane ("Inventory") will show this GuestLoad object. You can then untwist/expand the GuestLoad and find the related VM in the "Consumes" folder.
Alternatively, if you try searching again, just click on the VM name without the GuestLoad prefix.
Hope that helps!
Hi Chris ,
I checked with another VM and I cannot see the information. Please find the attachement.
sarvagya if you're in the same viewset as will.searle showed in his reply (you should have this view when you click on a VM), you'll note that the related physical/ESX host is shown in the bottom-right panel.
