Welcome to Veeam Community forums and thanks for the feedback, much appreciated!

Currently if you would like to see multiple objects in the same performance report, I would suggest using Custom Performance report that does you give you such flexibility.

Thank you.


Hm, not really. Even in a customized dashboard (Example: VMWare performance | Top VMs read latency) I am fixed to 10 VMs, not customizable. The "View full report" option even then does not give me the option to choose more then one VM, and the report itself (Action | create report) only gives me the virtual machine performance data charts, but no latency charts.
Inside veeam one monitor I can have this list as chart and table (Infrastructure View | Datastores , Disk I/O, Stack by: virtual machines, Chart view: Datastore read latency, Period: last week), but how do I print this?

Thanks

Hi,

I would like to have an addition for the report "oversized virtual machines":

Show us the oversized disks, so that we know about wasted disk space inside the VMs.

Thanks Karl-Heinz

I'm not referring to a custom dashboard, you need to navigate to Workspace tab -> Templates -> and choose VMware Custom Performance.

Would you like to compare the capacity of created disk partitions vs. virtual disk capacity or "wasted space" is something else?

Hello and sorry, did not explain correctly.

What I would like to have:

Customer wants a virtual machine with 100 GB diskspace, but in the end uses much less. If I could see this in "VMWare Oversized virtual Machines" (used disk space vs. given disk space inside the VM) it would be nice.

Thanks

Karl, so basically you're looking for the wasted space (the sum of blocks marked as "deleted") inside the VM to compare this value with used disk space from the VM perspective, right?

Hi,

In veeam ONE reporter workspace you deliver a page, which shows me the Oversized Virtual Machines with CPU and Memory (peak and average) usage. When there could be columns concerning disk space (peak, average, now used), I could see VMs with oversized/overallocated disks. Those blocks inside the VM are not nesessarily deleted, maybe even "never used", but from VM perspective the blocks are assigned. I am no friend of thin provisioning, so I prefer giving the space which is needed from the beginning, instead of hoping the place on the datastores will be sufficient in the future.

Thanks

Thanks for clarifications.

I didn't realize we were talking about thick disks. If you want to see "virtual disk used space" vs. "used disk space inside the VM", you can navigate to Custom Infrastructure report, choose Virtual Machine as an object and then add these columns to the report: Name, Partition: Capacity Total, Partition: Free space, Virtual Disk: Size Total, Virtual Disk: Size.

This should give you the report you need.

My Datastore view returns with No data available. Is this because I have ESX 4.1?

I doubt that. Could you please tell me if you see any datastore data in Monitor Client?

I see datastore issues, but all of the performance statistics return with no data available.

Then it's better to contact our support team and let them investigate your debug logs files. Thanks!

VeeamOne does not seem to be compatible with SureBackup. When I run a SureBackup job, an alarm is generated because there is a momentary time where there is a "duplicate MAC address". Selecting to "suppress" the alarm during a "Veeam backup operation" does not stop this alarm from happening.

Yes, you're right. Veeam Backup operation is only "aware" about backup jobs, but thanks for the feedback!

VeeamOne needs to report on B&R and be fully awere of it too. I would also like to see report on the size and expected growth rate of my backups to plan bandwidth for cross datacenter backups.

Hi Joe,

You would like to have some kind of capacity planning report for your backup repositories, correct? What about other reports? If you could share your ideas, that would help us to deliver these reports a lot faster :)

Thanks!
