Feature Request- CPU/memory standard deviation alarm & report

Post by nbarry »

Requesting an off-by default/configurable alarm for CPU & Memory usage with low standard deviation.
Natural usage of CPU & Memory tends to have peaks and valleys. In many environments, a utilization graph that appears locked at a given percent is a symptom of an application problem, for example, a stuck thread/s monopolizing CPU, which tends to present as an x/n flatline graph. These are rarely at a percentage that would trigger normal utilization alarms- as a peak of that number would be wholly unremarkable, what is bizarre is the lack of variance, and this is immediately obvious when watching the performance graph.

This data is already present in Veeam ONE Reports database- I have been able to find the impacted systems by running a performance report, filtering out systems with <x% usage to eliminate idle machines, and then sorting the resulting report by standard deviation.

Hi Nathan,

Welcome to Veeam Community Forums and thank you for the feature request.

Just to clarify, are we talking about the VM resource utilization?

Thanks

Correct- VM resource utilization.
