VMware HCI Assessment is a tool, which is used to capture workload metrics, which allows customers to assess their current environments.
The VMware HCI assessment captures metrics required for sizing and designing an HCI solution (vSphere + vSAN) and allows translating data into the vSAN ReadyNode Sizer to build a custom vSAN solution.
The process for creating a VMware HCI assessment is very simple.
A Customer can request a Live Optics Capture and a Partner or SE will create a project and invite them to that project.
After joining the project, install the collector and run an assessment for 4 hours – 7 days (24-48 hours is recommended.)
Both the Customer and Partner will have a live view into the data being captured. A Customer need not wait for the entire run period to look at preliminary data. If a customer wants to run an assessment offline, Live Optics will capture data locally and will create an SIOKIT. After the assessment is complete, the Customer can then upload the SIOKIT to his project and generate a report.
Once complete, users can share a read-online version of the online report with other users. In addition, a downloadable pdf and ppt is available for the project
What is the profit?
Results are provided in 24-48 hours only, with no impact on their workloads performance.
Customer gets the visualized report, which includes such metrics as: IOPS, Read/Write ratio, Total/Free/Used Capacity, Memory and CPU usage, Average daily write, Peak Aggregate Network Throughput etc.
Provides the understanding of how applications are performing on current environment and helps to understand the possible performance boost on new infrastructure.
