Hands down, your most important job with any virtual environment is performance management. Almost every problem in a virtual environment – slow VMs, unresponsive applications, limitations on consolidation – can be traced back to not performing this task effectively. Yet the problem with performance management is in really understanding what you need to do. Where do you monitor? What do you monitor? How can you track performance problems back to an actionable root cause? What tools can assist, and are vSphere’s in-the-box tools enough (hint: no)? Learn the answers to these questions and more with Greg Shields in this final ESXpert session. In it, Greg will give you his 10-step solution to solving any ESX performance problem!
