VMware - Monitor Disk Activity of VMs?
Posted on 2011-03-23
Perhaps a silly question but is there a way to monitor disk activity of all my VM's? I'm interested in finding out if a VM is writing excessively to it's disk. Our VM's hard disk are located on a NetApp filer. We mirror the NetApp volumes out of state to our disastor recovery site. We are seeing large volumes of data getting mirrored occasionally to the disaster site. A theory is that a VM may be writing large quantities of data to it's disk resulting in the large amounts of data getting mirrored.
We are running ESX 4.1. Can I monitor using Virtual Center? Is there a script that I can use?
Thanks in advance for your help,
