Identify if virtualization hosts are congested
CONTEXT: We are monitoring virtual servers that share a VM host.
PROBLEM: If host resources are overallocated, the physical resources can be contended even if the virtual resources aren't. This is not easy to spot in SQL Monitor.
• Add virutal host counters for VMware and Hyper-V to the analysis graph: CPU, Memory, disk...
• Integrate with a Virtualisation monitoring solution to connect the dots more easily
We have now released version 7.1.0. The collection of VMware metrics is out of beta.
If you have suggestions for any improvements you would like to see, please begin a new suggestion with as much detail as possible, so we can consider where best to focus our efforts.

don't forget about the storage... windows and netapp support would be appreciated

Hi Daniel. Main benefit of having such options inside SQL Monitor would - imho - be to more easily correlate timings of some events. Other than that, it makes sense that dedicated hypervisor monitoring tools offer more.
Any progress on this?
This is in our project plan but unfortunately we do not have any ETA on this yet.

Any news about this good suggestion?
Thanks a lot for your feedback. We have also been discussing this internally. Hopefully we will work on this sometime soon.
