Starting with VMAN 8.0, and continuing with 8.1 we've streamlined how you deploy and use VMAN. Virtualization Manager 8.2 , the latest edition of these efforts, is now available on your Customer Portal.
One of the biggest pain points that surfaced over the last 2 releases was that the process for adding virtualization nodes to be monitored was not intuitive. This is solved with a new simplified workflow!
Whether choosing to add a Node or setting up a Discovery job, we've updated those entry points to direct you to the new, separate workflow.
|Add a Node - Select VMware vCenter or Hyper-V devices|
|Network Discovery - Add VMware vCenter or Hyper-V devices|
|All Settings - Add VMware vCenter or Hyper-V devices|
Once you click on any of those entry points you'll be able to get started monitoring your environment with a few simple clicks.
|Add a Virtual Object for Monitoring|
|See the thresholds that apply to your virtualization manager entities|
|Click Finish and you're successfully on your way to monitoring your virtualization environment|
If you identified any thresholds that you'd like to tweak, simply navigate to All Settings -> Virtualization Settings to update your thresholds. Within a few clicks, you're ready to take advantage of capacity planning, recommendations and much more!
