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.
I've noticed in the module Admin guides that I've read through that about 1/2 of the guide is dedicated to the module in question, and the other 1/2 is just dedicated to Orion. The VMAN guide is a good example of this. 135 pages of vMan, 131 pages Orion. This to me is a cumbersome way of doing business. It's also a little daunting to be given the task of learning a module, then downloading the guides for SAM, VMAN or NPM, and finding a 300 - 600+ page tome awaiting you. Could we have an …
This would be super handy to be able to visually trend our DRS activity. This would help determine how busy a cluster is since excessive vmotion can be a sign of issues.
We've gotten several requests from users to be able to perform management actions with VMan, much like what Server and Application Monitor (SAM) has for Windows Servers, so I'm putting this here to guage broader interest. Examples of such actions would be: Stop/Start/Reboot VM Create/Delete Snapshot Open VM Console
