Use the services weather to model your Nutanix Cluster

The functionality " IT Weather Services ServiceNav's "Nutanix Cluster" allows you to graphically model your Nutanix Cluster.

The realization of this Weather Service requires prior supervision of the various elements making up the Nutanix Cluster.

Your Service Weather in a few steps :

The supervision of the Nutanix Cluster :

  • Monitor the status and performance of your Nutanix Cluster by adding service models to measure its performance:
    • Nutanix-Cluster-Status
    • Nutanix-Cluster-IOPS
    • Nutanix-Cluster-Latency
    • Nutanix-Cluster-IOBandwidth

Monitoring the capacity and performance of Nutanix Cluster Storage :

  • Supervise the general use of Nutanix Cluster Storage by using service models to measure its general use:
    • Nutanix-Cluster-StorageUsage
  • A Nutanix Cluster Storage cluster is made up of Containers grouping together one or more Storage Pools. In the event of an alert on the Nutanix-Cluster-Storage Usage, you will quickly be able to find out the cause by also supervising the Containers and Storage Pools using the following service models:
    • Nutanix-Container-Usage
    • Nutanix-Storage Pool-Usage

Supervision of the Nutanix Blocks making up the Cluster :

  • Ensure the good health of your Nutanix Blocks by using the following service models:
    • Nutanix-Disk-Status

Supervision of the Supervisors of each Nutanix Node:

  • Also make sure that the hypervisors in each of the hospitals are in good health. Nutanix Node.
  • When using VMware technology, you can use the following service models to monitor the health of your ESXs:
    • VMware-ESX-CPU
    • VMware-ESX-Datastore
    • VMware-ESX-DiskIO-Read
    • VMware-ESX-DiskIO-Write
    • VMware-ESX-Hardware
    • VMware-ESX-NetUsage
    • VMware-ESX-RAM
    • VMware-ESX-Runtime_Issues
    • VMware-ESX-Runtime_status
    • VMware-ESX-Services
    • VMware-ESX-Services-WithExclusion
    • VMware-ESX-SWAP

Example of a Weather forecast for the services of your Nutanix Cluster :

Once the supervision is done, you will be able to model your Service Weather.

The capture below is an example, we find the different elements constituting a Nutanix Cluster including :

- Cluster status and performance,
- The use of Storage,
- The physical state of the different equipment making up the cluster.

As shown in the capture below, the interest of such a model is to be able, in case of an alert, to directly access the "root cause" or root cause of a degradation of the Nutanix Cluster. The capture below clearly shows that this degradation is due to a Critical alert from the Container 1 Usage 1 Pool:
