Splunk App for VMware
Comprehensive cross-tier operational visibility across your virtualized environment
The Splunk App for VMware unlocks the value of vSphere data such as host and VM performance metrics, ESX/i hosts and vCenter logs, vCenter Server tasks and events and more. With over 25 out-of-the-box reports, gain operational insights and analytics including performance, availability, security, capacity and change tracking. Correlate the virtualization data with all other technology tiers including applications, operating systems and hardware infrastructure for holistic visibility and monitoring across your IT operations.
Real-time Operational Insights
Get immediate visibility into the workload and health of your VMware environment. Instantly identify VMs, hosts and datastore problem areas. Persist data over time to identify performance impact based on configuration. Browse ESX/i hosts and VC logs with intelligent filtering using a built-in log browser. Alert on abnormalities to proactively manage issues.
Topology Maps for Comprehensive Visibility
Monitor health of individual nodes based on pre-defined thresholds. Use interactive topology views to find and fix problems. Get detailed reports based on the 20-second granular metrics for deep-dive diagnostics and long-term trending and analytics. Compare the 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 ESX/i hosts with an out-of-the-box security report. Ensure appropriate controls are implemented with insights into user access and activity within the 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 and track utilization over-time to optimize resources 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 impact availability, performance, security and capacity. Keep up to date on virtual assets and track the status of assets within the dynamic VMware environment in real time.
