Understanding the Automation Insight Report

#120290

The Automation Insight dashboard provides real-time and proactive automation reports that help you monitor which clusters have enabled real-time and proactive automation, the number of executed actions, and a real-time/historical view of completed actions throughout the day. This page is divided into two sections: Real-time Automation and Proactive Automation.

Note: Both types of automation insight are only supported for VMware environments.

Real-Time Automation

The Real-time Automation reports provide a comprehensive view of clusters in your environment that have real-time automation enabled, current actions that are being executed, and a historical/real-time view of completed actions. Currently, CPU and Memory Bump Ups are executed under Real-time Automation.

With Real-time Automation, actions are executed automatically when alarms are detected due to resource constraints. The Real-time Automation section is comprised of three reports:

  • Real-Time Automation Coverage—Shows the percentage of clusters with Real-time Automation enabled by resource type.
  • Real-Time Actions—Shows the number of completed actions by resource type.
  • History of Real-Time Actions—Shows a historical/real- time view of actions completed by resource type.

For more information, see Using Real-Time Automation.

Proactive Automation

The Proactive Automation reports provide a comprehensive view of clusters in your environment that have proactive automation enabled, current proactive actions that are scheduled to be completed, and a historical view of when proactive actions have been executed. Currently bump ups (CPU, Memory, Disk), bump downs (CPU, Memory) , and rebalancing moves are executed under Proactive Automation.

With Proactive Automation, actions are reviewed and executed on a schedule. The Proactive Automation section is comprised of three reports:

  • Proactive Automation Coverage—Shows the percentage of clusters with Proactive Automation enabled by resource type.
  • Proactive Actions—Shows the number of completed, proactive actions by resource type.
  • History of Proactive Actions—Shows a historical view of proactive and scheduled actions that have been completed by resource type.
