V Sentry

VMware Performance Monitoring

V Sentry provides end-to-end VMware visibility.

SentryOne V Sentry provides SQL Server DBAs and VMware Administrators a unique view of resource utilization for VMware hosts. Analyze network, CPU, memory, and storage performance for VMware hosts and their virtual machines.

DBAs and VMware administrators now both have the visibility to see what, where, and why VMware Host performance is slow.

VM-level resource utilization

Identify at a glance VMs that are using the most resources. The main V Sentry performance dashboard displays a breakdown of how each server resource is being used by VMs.

Ready time and co-stop

Easily view the VMware measurements for ready-time percentage and co-stop percentage relative to CPU usage. With this view, you can quickly determine whether a CPU is overcommitted or VMs need to be right-sized.

Patented disk activity view

Get a view across both the database server and the virtual storage resources to truly understand I/O performance for the combined environment. This activity view is particularly helpful for DBAs who typically have only the view of storage performance from their database servers.

Disk space view

Easily determine which virtual machines are using the most disk space through V Sentry's graphical view of storage capacity.

Tintri storage integration

Get an end-to-end view of performance across the entire application stack and the underlying virtual infrastructure, including Tintri VM-aware storage. The dashboard shows the performance differential of SQL Server, Windows, Hyper-V, and Tintri storage layers over time for efficient root cause analysis.

Real-time and historical metrics

Use the Windows performance dashboard to view real-time performance metrics, or switch to history mode. Easily jump to the Event Calendar or Processes to determine exactly what was happening when you experienced problems.

Desktop, web, and mobile access

Get easily configurable, highly customizable cloud access to your performance data.
