Normally, OMU 8.x already has DSI2DDF, - you can check it by listing packages and searching for a 'SPI Data Collector' one. If you don't have it, please download the latest version HP can provide, or use this link - http://www.nworks.com/downloads/DSI2DDF ... .00.sdtape
to get 02.24 version.
In our terminology, VEM is a server that has nworks Virtual Infrastructure Collector (VIC) and OM agent, comprising a data pipe. All collectors are controlled by central unit knows as nworks Management Ceter. Yes, you can install all components on the same Virtual Machine or physical server. Please, refer to installation guide for detailed steps - http://www.veeam.com/nworks_spi_for_vmw ... ide_pg.pdf
No, we do not support OVPA at all, we work with a regular Embedded Performance Component (EPC/CODA) in the Operations Agent. Just deploying Windows Server agent with DSI2DDF to your VEM would be enough.
HP Performance Manager can leverage graph templates that our solution would create on your OMU system, to allow visualization of performance counters. If you do not use HP Performance Manager, you can disregard this integration.
.msi file for HP Reporter is a package to populate the mentioned performance data-mining tool with reports about VMware objects (hypervisors, clusters, resource pools, virtual machines). Same here, - if you don't use HP Reporter, you may just disregard this integration.
If you use HP Performance Insight, there is a standalone Report Pack download available on our web-site to leverage collected metrics from VEMs for interactive drilling-down experience.
Please let us know if you have any questions about our solution.
Have a nice day!
