Linux Performance Analysis: At-a-Glance Virtual Frame Dashboard GUI

With its intuitive Web-based interface, Galileo PE allows you to access your performance data from anywhere in the world. Customize your date ranges, select by LPAR/VM, Physical or Virtual Frame (Linux Module), and get online help quickly and easily. You can also customize your own personal dashboard, grouping the charts that are most important to you. Illustrated is a Virtual Frame grouping three Linux VM's to show their aggregated usage of CPU, Memory, and Disk throughput. More detail is available by clicking the categories (e.g. CPU, Tape).

Linux Performance Analysis: VMs CPU Usage

In this example, a user can examine the aggregated CPU for the Linux hosts grouped within a Virtual Frame, which will help to quickly identify an under- or over-utilized server. Note the actual Data values can be displayed if desired

All thumbnail charts can be expanded to give you more detail about system performance. Charts can be customized using a wide-range of tools available in the expanded view.

Linux Performance Analysis: VMs Real Memory Used

In this example, a user can examine the aggregated Memory for the Linux hosts grouped within a Virtual Frame. The chart is stacked to show the total memory in use at any given time.

Linux Performance Analysis: VMs Utilization

In this chart, each VM's CPU utilization is plotted to illustrate CPU usage in terms of a percentage. This view helps to quickly identify VMs that are heavy consumers of the Virtual/Logical CPUs they have defined.

Linux Performance Analysis: VM CPU Usage vs. Entitlement

A quick check of the VM CPU Usage vs. Entitlement chart will show the physical CPUs in use by the VM, and how it compares to the virtuals assigned and set entitlement. Changes made over time will be reflected.
