We currently use VMAN 8.2 for capacity planning. However, we have multiple datacenters with multiple clusters in each datacenter.
I am curious to hear what the community has done to ease capacity planning at the cluster level. Does everyone run each individual cluster simulation and then roll up the results? Or is there a way to aggregate these forecasted results?
Thanks for sharing.
Capacity planning results are stored in VIM_CapacityPlanning_ReportResults however, the parsing of the data and doing the aggregation math is a non trivial effort. My recommendation would be to open up a feature request to support capacity planning across multiple clusters Virtualization Manager Feature Requests so others can vote and I can collect more feedback on the request.
