I just noticed VC Ops Enterprise had an update, version 1.0.1 was just released. Although it is just a minor release and I more or less promised myself not to do articles about minor release or upgrades I do feel it is worth checking out. VC Ops is one of those tools that can make your life a lot easier when it comes to monitoring and pinpointing bottlenecks. Especially the new resource detail page (see screenshot below) is very useful. You can find the release notes here and you can download it here.
- A new widget to display relationship and performance of objects in vSphere environment.
- Introduction of resource detail page to show vSphere performance characteristics, Key Metrics, and Events.
- Introduction of Analysis page to view performance of vSphere objects for a given metric via Heat map widget.
- Enforcement of unique remote collector names.
