Arista EOS Management Pack for VMware vROps

by Brock Peterson on June 26, 2019

We recently released the Arista Extensible Operating System (EOS) management pack for VMware vRealize Operations Manager (vROps).  This grows our network monitoring portfolio to include Arista EOS, Cisco, Citrix, F5, Lenovo, and Palo Alto Networks.

Extending vROps into your network layer allows users to monitor and troubleshoot their network devices, in this case, Arista EOS switches, alongside their VMware VMs and ESXi Hosts.  Key advantages of this management pack include:

  • Identify potential issues in your Arista EOS systems, and their impact on dependent ESXi Hosts and VMs, before they spread to the next layer of the stack.
  • Stay ahead of network bottlenecks with predictive analytics. Blue Medora provides alerts, views, and reports to fully exploit the capacity management capabilities of vROps.
  • Drill deeply into your Arista EOS systems input and output rate and discards, and more.
  • View Arista EOS alerts and expert recommendations directly within vROps.

Besides the adapter itself, our management pack also includes three dashboards:

Arista EOS Health Investigation: Explore interactive topology maps and health status views of your network resources and their related components.
