VMware vRealize Operations Management Pack For Pivotal Cloud Foundry

The Management Pack for Pivotal Cloud Foundry extends the VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) monitoring platform by enabling customers to gain comprehensive visibility into the performance, capacity, and health of their Pivotal Application Service (PAS) and Pivotal Container Service (PKS).

VMware vRealize Operations Management Pack for Pivotal Cloud Foundry
Manage Your Pivotal Cloud Foundry Environment Smoothly Right from vRealize Operations

With expansive visibility into the performance, and operational control of your PCF applications and services AND the infrastructure on which they run, your PCF platform will be more effective and efficient when you use this management pack from Blue Medora. Administrators for VMware and PCF gain essential insights from vROps, the single pane of glass they know well.

See the key linkages between PCF and the virtual and physical infrastructure running it–regardless of how many and what type of networks are configured. These linkages are shown in their native naming scheme (object type, index) for fast recognition, easy control and reconfiguration.

Key Advantages

The Blue Medora solution to monitoring and controlling your PCF environment is the most comprehensive available. The management pack uses three collection end-points: the Bosh Director API, the Cloud Foundry API, and the Blue Medora Nozzle.

It also provides the broadest set of metrics, more than 70, which are organized into useful dashboards so you can easily see status, issues, and resolution paths.

Key Metrics on PCF Performance Right in vROps

Shown in heat maps for easy identification of areas needing attention.

A few examples include (see the documentation for a complete list):

  • Dropped messages
  • Thread connections
  • Total requests
  • Bosh metrics for load, cpu, memory, swap, and disk
Internal and external relationships provide PCF visibility

You can see under the hood to the virtual infrastructure beneath your Bosh Jobs like Diego Cells and Cloud Controllers, whether they are running on VMware VMs or Amazon EC2 instances. An understanding of these key relationships is a powerful tool that allows you to reduce MTTR (mean time to resolution) and increase the uptime of your PCF applications and containers.
