NetQoS adds new virtualisation capabilities to Performance Center

To combine Performance Center with network and application performance information from the physical environment

By CBR Staff Writer

NetQoS has updated its Performance Center with the new virtualisation capabilities to combine it with network and application performance information from the physical environment to show the entire infrastructure is supporting application delivery.

NetQoS claims that the Performance Center fills the gap between the virtual and physical environments by collecting and analysing application response times, traffic flows through Cisco IOS NetFlow, and device performance statistics within multi-tiered, virtual hosts and into and out of the virtual environment.

According to NetQoS, the new offerings includes the Response Time Virtual Collector capability which runs as a virtual machine in VMware, Microsoft or Citrix environments to provide visibility into the communications between each virtual server residing on the same physical machine.

Other capability includes NetFlow Reporting for Virtualised Environments which now supports NetFlow statistics exported from the Cisco Nexus 1000v and the VMware vSwitch to help network groups monitor how virtual application traffic impacts network performance.

NetQoS said that the integration with VMware vCenter allows the Performance Center to retrieve device health information from the VMware vCenter API to report data such as the number of virtual machines running on a host, CPU utilisation, disk usage, and memory utilisation.

The company added that by integrating the performance data from these above sources in one management console, the Performance Center allows IT organisations understand how applications are performing across the infrastructure and manage virtualisation.
