IVIM versus Virtualization Manager


Hey all,


I was wondering if there was anyone out there who was running IVIM (the virtualization tab in NPM) side-by-side w/ Virtualization Manager. Are there any major benefits to this approach? We're still in the testing phases for Virtualization Manager, but it seems like it is going to cover our bases nicely.

    I don't run them side by side but my understanding is that Virtualization Manager provides a much deeper dive on the virtualization stuff including vm/host/storage mappings and such.  Orion NPM is much higher level but also provides all of the network and system monitoring functionality that you won't get with Virtualization Manager.  Which tool is best really depends on what problem you are trying to solve.

    Byrona is exactly right.  Virtualization Manager collects more data, analyzes it from a virtual point of view (alerts, trends, reports) and gives you actionable info for your virtual environment.  I am happy to chat with you directly about Virtualization Manager if you have time - just contact me directly.
