It’s not a new issue that we face in our jobs to deal with poorly performing applications running on virtual machines. We know it would be a problem if a virtualized application were to fail, for it to not be available during a critical business process, or for some key performance thresholds to dip.
The complexity of this whole scenario is caused by the lack the visibility and data on the health of the virtualized environment including the applications running on the VMs, operating systems, data stores, as well as the VMs themselves.
Your Microsoft® Active Directory™ application running on a VMware® ESXi host could experience poor performance because the application itself had an issue, or the VM running the application had an issue. The question is: How do you get this insight into what went wrong?
