The purpose of this dashboard is to capture all the important issues with Physical Host Hardware, host network availability, storage availability, and vSwitch configuration issues. Out of the box, vROPS captures all these issues using alerts definitions. This dashboard filters these alerts and turn the data into something a lot more useful and way easier to manage. A guide on how I created this dashboard can be found here. Below is a guide on how to best use this dashboard
All physical host hardware issues are detected here. View memory, hardware, fan, temperature, voltage, system board issues, and more. Shows when it started and how long it has been happening.
Is the redundant networks on your host working properly? Are the Host networks on the host configured correctly? This part of the dashboards shows it all.
Storage configured correctly? I wouldn’t wait till an outage to find out.
This part of the dashboards checks if all your MTU and VLANs are configured correctly
