Best practices for VMware monitoring

The following are the essential VMware monitoring best practices:

  • Grant the appropriate privileges to credentials so that IT technicians assigned to these roles can ensure that the Site24x7 monitoring tool performs the required actions and can fetch the applicable metrics within the VMware environment.
  • Use vCenter-based polling if applicable so that vMotion will be captured automatically.
  • Enable datastore snapshot monitoring to prevent critical snapshots from being unattended or growing exponentially, as keeping them unmonitored results in latency and decreased application performance of the VMs.
  • Configure appropriate hardware sensor alerts, as failing might lead to undetected issues such as overheating and abnormal behavior that can worsen over time, resulting in system crashes, data loss, or hardware damage.
