      Recommendations

      When VMAN identifies a way to optimize VM resources for active and potential issues, it makes a recommendation for one click optimization. Recommendations display in the Orion Web Console with a description for optimizing your network, and provides a series of steps you can apply immediately with a button click or schedule at a later time.

      • Balance the virtual environment for optimal performance. You can spread load over hosts, which optimizes the performance for all virtual machines.
      • Optimize capacity. Virtualization Manager predicts when you will run out of resources on virtualization entities, so you can plan in advance when you have to assign new resources.
      • Predict possible future performance and capacity issues based on past trends.
