VMWare vCentre Operations Manger

I see on our vcentre appliance we have this option available.

We are running 3x hosts with local storage and vcenter appliance.  Is it worth configuring vcenter ops to monitor the hosts and what sort of resources does it use?

Thanks

Yes of course, if will provide you with a better insight, into performance, that just vCenter Charts, because it displays a HEALTH chart!

Quick and easy to deploy, from an OVF/OVA, so just Click and Import, very quick.

As for resources, it's two VMs, and based on a small deployment...

Analytics VM - 2 vCPU, and 9GB RAM, 200GB data storage
UI VM - 2 vCPU, and 7GB, 140GB data storage

Do not try to reduce the resources of the VMs, otherwise it will under perform, and go slow!

If you have a small environment, there is no point, stressing it out with monitoring applications!

Time to increase your RAM!

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Agree.
Time to get a couple of SANs too, upgrade vm licensing and add more hosts and deploy FT.
