Report question/Feature request

Veeam Logoby mtomczyk » Wed Apr 13, 2011 1:04 pm

Hi am wondering if there is a report or a way to get a report to show what VM's are using there allocated resources and what VM's are ether over allocated or under allocated. What I am looking for is way to see a report on how much resources I can reclaim by changing the allocations of the over allocated servers.

As of now, it is possible to see only how much resources are allocated to VMs, it can be done by selecting "VM" as object type and using corresponding set of columns. But we will consider your feature request about reclamation of resources- thanks for pointing this out. Is there anything else you'd like to see in Reporter?

Here's a VM rightsize / problem check report you could create today -

Base pack / infrastructure report template, use VM Object.
Add at least the following columns (names may not be exact): name, tot mem, runtime info max mem usage, no of vcpus, runtime info max cpu usage, partition name, partition free space.
Sort and group how you need. Maybe even use Business View to run against specific VMs
Use expression criteria to set parameters for partition free space - free space <= 10 (for example)

Unfortunately there is no easy way to directly compare max mem and cpu usage to VM's config via a single report, but you could use 2 different reports to compare the results manually.
