Server Virtualization Management Pack Guide

The Server Virtualization Management Pack for System Center Operations Manager 2007 contains all of the functionality provided by the Virtual Server 2005 R2 Management Pack, plus new functionality provided by the Virtual Machine Manager Management Pack, which enables you to monitor and report on your entire virtualized environment.

The Server Virtualization Management Pack monitors the health and performance of Virtual Machine Manager components, including library servers, virtual machine self-service Web servers, the Virtual Machine Manager server, the VMM database server, hosts, and virtual machines.

This Management Pack also includes the following reports, which can be opened from Reporting view in the Virtual Machine Manager Administrator Console:

  • Virtualization Candidates—Helps identify physical computers that are good candidates for conversion to virtual machines.

  • Virtual Machine Allocation—Provides information that you can use to calculate chargeback to cost centers for virtual machines.

  • Virtual Machine Utilization—Provides information about resource utilization by your virtual machines.

  • Host Utilization—For the specified time period and host group, this report shows the resources used by the virtual machine on a host.

  • Host Utilization Growth—Shows the percentage of change in resource usage and the number of virtual machines running on selected hosts during a specified time period.

The Server Virtualization Management Pack can be used in environments that are running Virtual Server alone, and in environments running Virtual Server and System Center Virtual Machine Manager.
