1) If you are doing performance management for a database server (oracle RDBMS) on a windows 2008 guest, on a VMware ESXi host, where exactly are the performance management tools installed? In the database, on the guest, on the host?
2) Also, where does storage fall into, is that also performance management, i.e. ensuring there is enough storage for the server? Or does this fall into another “management metric”, if so what is it referred to as?
3) What are some essential “health” metrics to audit each server on in terms of risk of availability/performance/uptime? Can you provide some examples?
