VirtualWisdom directly measures and monitors the physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructure to provide an unprecedented view into what is happening in real-time. With the VirtualWisdom real-time dashboards and historical trending information, admins can immediately identify and resolve configuration or performance issues. This substantially improves the productivity of the IT team and can save enterprise organizations millions of dollars per year. VirtualWisdom is unique in that it has three different probes to provide a full cross-domain view of the infrastructure. There is the Virtual Server Probe software probe, which collects data from VMWare's vCenter, the SAN Availability Probe software probe, which collects SNMP performance, error, and utilization data from network switches, and the SAN Performance Probe hardware device, which analyzes the Fibre Channel frames for detailed transaction and latency data. Once a problem is found, as defined by an exceeded performance, error, or utilization threshold, an alert is automatically sent to the customer’s management system or directly to the vendor of the failing or failed device.
