Monitoring VM Usage

Velostrata has a built-in recommendation engine that provides cost- and performance-optimized recommendations when:

  • Running a VM in the cloud.
  • Running a test clone.
  • Migrating a VM to cloud.

This functionality is available for AWS, Azure and GCP.

In order to provide an effective recommendation, Velostrata recommends monitoring the VM usage for at least 7 active days.

To start monitoring a VM:
  1. On the vSphere Web Client, select the desired VM or VMs.
  2. Right-click on the VM or VMs and select Velostrata Operations > Start Monitoring Usage.
  1. Click Yes. A yes appears in the Velostrata Monitoring VM Usage column.
To stop monitoring a VM:
  1. On the vSphere Web Client, select the desired VM or VMs.
  2. Right-click on the VM or VMs and select Velostrata Operations > Stop Monitoring Usage.
  1. Click Yes.
