Dynatrace enables you to explore the health of your virtualization infrastructure beginning with high-level general details on the home dashboard and extending all the way down to the performance of specific processes on individual virtual machine and ESXi host pages.
Your home dashboard
The home dashboard displays general VMware details about any standalone ESXi hosts and vCenter servers in your environment, including daily and past-week usage statistics.
Click the VMware tile to view a list of the virtual hosts in your environment.
If you have more than one vCenter or standalone ESXi host, you’ll find your servers listed in your vCenters page. The vCenters page can be filtered to display only vCenters, only EXSi hosts, or both.
Click a vCenter card to drill down into the details of that specific server.
Individual vCenter pages
Each vCenters page displays a range of useful vCenter information including number of clusters, number of hosts, and environment dynamics statistics. You can compare current statistics with statistics gathered over the past seven days. The most important measurements are available here: CPU and memory consumption, network activity, migrations (vMotion), and storage delay.
If the vCenter server you’re looking at includes ESXi hosts, you’ll see a list of the ESXi hosts at the bottom of the page. Click an ESXi host to view full health statistics for that host.
ESXi host pages
ESXi host pages provide details about the top consumers of hypervisor memory and CPU. Here you can quickly check storage usage across all datastores and locate the most active network interfaces in your environment.
Virtual machines page
Click the CPU or Memory infographic links on an ESXi host page to view the performance details of specific virtual machines. Here you can compare overall ESXi host behavior with the resource utilization of individual machines.
