ESXi Monitor

Why you should use an ESXi Monitor

Virtualized environments are much more vulnerable than physical environments: running multiple virtual servers on one computer creates a single point of failure, both for the physical server itself, and in its network connection. A virtual server which crashes affects all the applications on that server. ESXi monitoring provides vital information for planning, testing and monitoring virtualized environments.

Paessler's ESXi monitor PRTG provides the comprehensive real-time monitoring necessary to ensure the reliability and stability of virtual environments.

How the ESXi Monitor Work

With specially-designed sensors that can be quickly and easily deployed, PRTG Network Monitor provides continuous collection and analysis of network data across virtual applications and ESXi servers.

The VMware Host Server Sensor monitors a VMware host server using SOAP. It shows CPU and memory usage, disks read and write speed, and network received and transmitted speed of a VMware host server. The VMware Virtual Machine Sensor monitors the same but on a single virtual machine. And the VMware Host Hardware sensor monitors hardware information of an ESXi server using WBEM. It shows the current reading and health state. The ESXi monitor also supports VMware SNMP monitoring.

But PRTG is much more than an ESXi Monitor. It includes a lot of other network monitoring tools:
