Monitor Best Practices for Memory Ballooning

Veeam Logoby VMark » Thu Nov 12, 2009 3:22 am

Veeam Monitor has many counters like “Memory Balloon”, “Memory Overhead” and so on.

Do you have some guidelines or desirable values (ranges) for each counter of Monitor that we could use as a default setting?

Is there any document with the best practices? explanations of values ... like 50000 threshold1 and 100000 threshold2 what are these numbers ?

Thanks,
Dom

Hello Dominique,

You can find all counters descriptions in Select Counters Window while standing on particular objects performance tabs (such as CPU/Memory/Disk). As for best practices, then we've already created predefined alarms based on our customers feedback and our internal knowledge, however for some performance counters you should create and configure your own thresholds, as it is really hard to predict your hardware performance.

Creating your own thresholds should be hard, I suggest using Alarms Modelling engine to see if you were right with the threshold or not.

Hope this helps.
