vCenter monitoring events and problem detection?

jeff_rowell

I'm looking into the capabilities of Dynatrace Managed for monitoring of vCenter, and although I can find some good documentations of what metrics will appear in the user interface I have not been able to locate any information concerning the types of events / problems that Dynatrace would potentially raise (i.e., what alerts could be raised). Is this information documented anywhere? Note that I am specifically interested in knowing whether Dynatrace would raise events/problems for vCenter issues and also for any VMs (without OneAgents deployed).

Hi,

Here is an overview of important events that are raised by Dynatrace, it also contains some event types coming from vCenter, e.g.: VM motion event.

Probelms on an infrastructure level will be raised for your ESXI hosts, for example for CPU saturation, disk latency,...

With the integratoin it can also detect VM Migratoins as a potential Root Cause for Problems.


Problems for VMs without an OneAgent will also be raised. Here is an example for a Problem with CPU Satuarion of VM not instrumented with a One Agent:

Hi Jeff,

Adding to the previous answers, you can also find the type of VMWare-related problems automatically detected by the Anomaly Detection engine in the Settings->Anomaly Detection->Infrastructure->VMWare
