Performance Management in a Virtual Environment
Performance monitoring with virtualization is much more complicated than with traditional servers.
The virtualization layer that is inserted between the physical hardware and the guest operating
systems of the virtual machines changes the way you monitor performance. With virtualization,
there is more to monitor, and interpreting the results can be difficult. Therefore, having a good
monitoring solution is key so that you can be automatically alerted to problems and have important
statistics highlighted for you.
