With vSphere and vCenter, so much time is focused on configuring it, many times, a very small amount of time is spent actually monitoring it to ensure you are achieving your goals of solid performance, reliability, and security. This statement is also true for VMware vCloud Director. Thus, while installing and configuring is certainly crucial, the ability to monitor vCloud Director is also crucial.
In the video below (a full-length video taken from my vCloud Director Essentials training course), I show you, step by step how to:
- Monitor tasks and events in vCloud Director, at multiple levels, just like you already do in VMware vCenter or vSphere.
- Monitoring blocking tasks, used when you have integrated vCloud Director with other management tools, connected through an AMQP broker, like RabbitMQ.
- Check the status of provider and org vDC cloud infrastructure usage.
- How to view vCloud Director log files from the command lie.
