We use Fusion-io ioTurbine to improve storage performance. I would like to be able to capture performance of the vmhba used by Fusion-io to see show the IO offloaded to that HBA. Also, per vmnic statistics should be captured. I have looked at two competing products that were able to detect issues with receive packet drops that Virtualization Manager does not detect.
The widget creation defines the sort order of the columns but for quick changes, it would be very helpful to be able to double-click a column header and have it sort, just like we do in vCenter. Click the column again and it will reverse the order (ascending to descending, etc.). When I see a table like VM latency, it would be helpful to click on the header of the highest latency and try to identify the worst offendors so I can see if it's one with read latency or write latency without editing …
The query builder is powerful but difficult to use, generally requiring regex expertise and lots of trial and error. Create a wizard that allows users to simplify building of basic queries, but leave the current query builder in an "Advanced" option. Please add examples if you vote for this idea.
Being able to show custom dashboards and reports to our customers based on what their are using would be amazing. This could be resource pool based or folder based, but currently not really able to do with the current implementation. As well, the cost reporting tool is very limited especially since you cannot even report on storage that is offered for less than $1 per gig or at different pricing tiers. Cheers, Dave
The two existing resources called "Top VM IOPS" (Top VM IOPS) and "Top VM Latency" (Top VM Latency) are great to indicate VMs in trouble. But when those VMs have more than one virtual disk and are located on different datastores, would be great to be able see IOPS and Latency for each. I managed to see IOPS per virtual disk in a chart in VMAN, but latency seems to be available per datastore only.
I have seen that your vman 7.1 has an unsupported 5.11 centos distro with easy root access. I would like to see a secure supported os with no root privileges allowed similar to LEM.
