Capacity Planning for Virtual Servers: Tools & Risks

Virtual server capacity planning and performance management tools
IBM divides the problem into three parts – monitoring, trending and capacity modeling. They provide logical and physical infrastructure monitoring using IBM Tivoli Monitoring. Tivoli Performance Analyzer can be used for trending to help with performance analysis; IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager (and the OMEGAMON family for z/OS and subsystems) assesses service level impact and performance. Capacity modeling is addressed with a range of modeling and sizing applications tied to the platform and what exactly is being modeled. They offer a consolidated modeling tool for logical and virtual server modeling.

BMC's Performance Assurance for Servers and Virtual Servers delivers complete performance analysis and capacity planning functionality for both x86 and Unix virtualization environments supporting VMware ESX, MS Virtual Servers, IBM (LPARS, DLPARS, SPLPARS), SUN (Dynamic System Domains and Containers), and HP-UX (n/Pars and v/Pars). Of course, BPA integrates with all of BMC's BSM management tools, such as BMC Event Manager for event filtering and automatic alerting, and BMC Service Impact Manager for service management, in addition to offering full access to configuration data details stored in Atrium CMDB.
