Open Source Hyperic Offers An Alternative For Virtualization Management


Project supports deep monitoring for VMware environments

Hyperic HQ is an open source monitoring and management application that’s designed to control VMware’s ESX servers and the virtual machines hosted on them. The product can be used with VM-hosted applications and operating systems, or on individual operating system or application components; it’s one of the most mature open source projects we’ve tested.

Overall, we have to say that HHQ is a really strong “meta” console for VMware environments. While it duplicates some of the functionality of the Virtual Center application shipped with VMware ESX 3.x, it still provides an often deep view into the inner workings of a distributed VMware installation.

HHQ correlates server system and application events with behavior metrics such as CPU cycles required, memory usage and network connections all of which is accessible from a browser-based dashboard console. HHQ let us see manageable characteristics of VMware hosts, hosted operating systems and compatible applications, providing a long list of monitorable data with options on how to act on that data. What’s left to the administrator is the task of correlating what, of the many useful (and useless) data points, with what actions to take and what to do based on the results of these actions.
