About this Show
In Episode 136, Douglas Brown interviews Ken Latimer, Senior Director Program Management and Alex Rosemblat, Product Marketing Manager at VKernel. Alex, Ken, and Doug discuss the 20 Key VMware performance metrics VKernel have learned to be issues in VMware virtualization environments. Alex and Ken will also discuss VKernel’s new Capacity Management Suite and how they can be used to assist in overcoming these 20 key metrics and more.
Virtualization introduces new challenges for managing the data center: Applications now compete for shared, dynamic infrastructure resources such as storage, CPU, and memory. This creates a complex resource allocation problem that if not solved, can result in hard-to-find performance bottlenecks. In this podcast Alex and Ken discuss the following:
- How overlooked issues originate in virtual infrastructure
- Key hidden problems that an environment may be experiencing, such as:
- CPU Ready
- Disk and queue latency
- Ballooning and memory swapping
- How to find & solve these issues using CMS
- Tips for proactive management of a virtual environment’s capacity
