End-to-End Picture of the Performance and Configuration
IntelliMagic’s breakthrough integration of VMware performance and configuration data changes the game for SAN administrators. Most solutions are either really strong on VMware support, Fabric support, or Storage support. IntelliMagic Vision for SAN is different. IntelliMagic Vision collects performance and configuration information on the VMware, fabric and storage systems to provide a complete and end-to-end picture. On top of that, IntelliMagic provides integrated topology visualization and automatically correlates and embeds the configuration relationships in the user interface.
What this Means for the User
For the first time there is a solution where you can identify a VM that is struggling with the intelligent dashboards, automatically drill down to the datastores, see the related LUNs, and visualize the LUN performance in just a couple of mouse clicks. You can also visualize the entire infrastructure from the VMware guest through the ESX Host, to the connected fabric ports, see the related switch ports for the storage system and see the associated LUNs in a single view. This offers you a wide range of use cases, presented in the following table:
|Vmware I/O||End-to-End Performance Analysis||I/O Workload Trending||End-to-End Path Analysis|
|SAN Fabric||Performance Bottleneck and Error Detection||Port Usage Trending||Zoning Misconfiguration Detection|
|SAN Storage||Automated Performance & Capacity Analysis||Capacity Forecasting and Trending||Configuration Variance Detection|
IntelliMagic Vision for SAN has always been about providing new levels of visibility to help uncover hidden risks in your infrastructure and the VMware support and topology visualization continues this tradition.
