1Xangati Aimed at Easing VMware ESX Server Management Woes
by Frank Ohlhorst
The Xangati for ESX deploys as a virtual appliance (.OVF format) on any ESX/ESXi server. It sees all communications across the vSwitches inside the ESX host.
3To-the-Second Visibility into Behavior of Each VM
Xangati shows every communication from every VM and what load each one places on the network.
4DVR Recording Capability
The Xangati user can record the activity of any communication including any virtual machine, ESX server, an application or a conversation. The recordings can be ad hoc or scheduled and can be replayed at any time.
5Launches from vSphere/vCenter Client
The Xangati solution is launched and used directly within vCenter.
6Auto Grouping for ESX Server
Xangati automatically groups all VMs and IP interfaces according to the host they reside on. This makes tracking top talkers per ESX instantaneous.
7Custom and Persistent Views
Xangati users can create up to 10 streaming windows looking at the most critical objects in their virtual ecosystem.
When the behavior of a VM or an application shifts significantly, the Xangati appliance triggers a recording for deep problem analysis. This is a feature of the Xangati Management Dashboard appliance.
9Focused View for Server Owners
This remote object viewer allows a Xangati admin to provide a summary view to a VM or application owner. This is a feature of the Xangati Management Dashboard appliance.
