KVM Monitoring

KVM monitoring

KVM has gained incredible momentum in thekvm-logo past years and is now rapidly growing with an increasing number of implementations around the world. Deploying OpenStack in a multi-hypervisor enterprise environment, most OpenStack distributions are today centered around a single hypervisor, KVM.  As more organizations start using KVM virtualization technology, the need to monitor, manage, and control it also increases.

op5 Monitor KVM monitoring capabilities allows organizations to do better capacity planning on KVM, which enables the provisioning of usage of resources such as storage, CPU, and memory more proactively. Knowing what, where, and when are crucial parts of capacity planning for organizations, making it possible to add resources to a virtual environment in a timely fashion. KVM monitoring provides fast event correlation, root cause analysis, problem identification for applications and services running on virtual or partially virtually run infrastructure. All this is possible due to the open standards on both the KVM platform and op5 Monitor.


KVM monitoring capabilities

  • Proactive KVM capacity planning increases reliability and uptime
  • Monitoring of all services and applications running on KVM
  • Fast setup time for monitoring of KVM
  • Provisioning of usage of resources
  • Identifying bottlenecks
  • Monitor resource usage on the hypervisor host or virtual machine such as:CPU usage
    • Memory usage
    • Network utilization
    • I/O read and write performance
  • Storage pool and volume usage
  • State on virtual machines

op5 and KVM on the IBM PureFlex System

op5 works with IBM as a ISV for IBM PureFlex System and is a Business Partner in the “Ready for IBM PureSystems ™. op5 has developed a virtual appliance for IBM PureFlex System with a KVM plug-in to monitor KVM. IBM PureFlex System is ideal for deployment of hypervisors such as KVM, and for using op5 Monitor as the tool to monitor the resource usage on the KVM virtualization infrastructure.
