Splunk App for VMware
Comprehensive visibility across your physical, virtual and hybrid infrastructure
While VMware virtualization brings efficiencies in datacenter management, it also creates a complex infrastructure that is often difficult to monitor. The uncoupled nature of virtual resources and underlying physical hardware can cause complex challenges during incident investigations, capacity analyses, change tracking and security reporting.
Unlock the value of your VMware vSphere data such as host and VM performance metrics, ESXi host and vCenter logs, vCenter Server tasks and events with the Splunk App for VMware. Using the app, view the overall health of your IT environment or drill down to collect in-depth insights of your VMware infrastructure for operational efficiencies and IT intelligence.
Real-time operational insights into VMware environments.
Gain in-depth visibility into your VMware vSphere infrastructure with the Splunk App for VMware. The app installs quickly and scales rapidly, giving you powerful insights into the largest of virtualized environments. Analyze and explore virtualization data for ad hoc analytics, powered by accelerated Splunk searches.
Use over twenty five built-in reports to get at-a-glance performance insights as well as operational analytics such as performance, availability, security, capacity and change tracking. Correlate the virtualization data with other technology tiers including applications, operating systems and hardware infrastructure for holistic visibility and monitoring across your IT operations.
Real-time Operational Performance Insights
Get immediate visibility into the health of your VMware environment. Instantly identify VMs, hosts and datastore problem areas. Persist data over time to identify the performance impact of resource configurations. Navigate ESXi host and VC logs, captured via syslog, with intelligent filtering using a built-in log browser. Alert on abnormalities to proactively manage issues.
Topology Maps for Comprehensive Visibility
Access the health of individual nodes based on pre-defined thresholds. Drill down from higher-level reports into topology views. Get detailed reports based on the 20-second granular metrics for deep-dive diagnostics and long-term trending and analytics. Cross-compare health of VMs and hosts over time to understand trends, establish baselines and optimize resource allocation.
Security Insights on Virtual Assets
Actively manage suspicious user activity, potential attacks and changes to users and ESXi hosts with out-of-the-box security report. Ensure appropriate controls are implemented with insights into user-access and an audit of tasks and events on your virtual infrastructure.
Configurable Capacity Reporting
Gain visibility into real-time CPU, memory, disk and datastore consumption. Alert proactively when capacity shortfalls occur. Reclaim unused space or re-allocate additional resources for optimal user experience. Trend utilization over time and optimize based on consumption.
Change Tracking and Asset Reporting
Audit changes to the environment, users and roles and ascertain the scope and impact of changes that could negatively affect availability, performance, security and capacity. Keep up-to-date on virtual assets and trend performance impact on VMs that are in motion. Report on the status of assets on the dynamic VMware in real time.
