    Turbonomic Top 10 Features: Health Chart

     

    To access the Health Chart, we will begin in the “Assure Service Performance” dashboard. Once there, your health chart will be in the bottom left corner. This will allow you to see the status of all hosts…storage…and virtual machines in your environment.

     

    If you’ve taken the leap to automation, you will likely see a mostly, or completely, green circle, as Turbonomic’s actions continuously drive your environment to the healthiest state possible. If you are working your way up to automation, you will see different colors representing the status of your entities. Green, as we mentioned, means entities are healthy and do not require action currently. Yellow represents the existence of a minor issue or issues – which affect cost or workload distribution but do not impact QoS, Orange signals major issues – which can affect QoS and should be addressed, and red means there are critical issues – which are actively affecting QoS and you are strongly advised to address them.

     

    Hover on any area of the pie to view the number of issues associated with the type of entity selected in the scroll bar (Host, Storage, or VM).  Click on an area to get the list of risks.  For each risk, you can identify the resolution for the problem by clicking on the severity icon on the left hand side.  To view ALL actions on these entities, select the button on the top right of the pop-out,  You can select and apply these actions within this view.

     

    To view the details on a recommendation’s target entity, simply click the graph button to the far right of the action.

     

    And finally, clicking the severity icon on the top right will bring you back to the risk view.
