De-Risking Your Environment

#120060

Note: Systems exempted by a user are not shown in the Risk reports. See Granting Exemptions for details of exempting systems.

The Risk reports provide an overview of the over-utilized clusters and systems within your on-premise environments. These reports answer the questions about how to identify and reduce over-utilization risk in your environments by implementing Densify's rebalancing and bump-up recommendations. These reports help you to determine the following:

  • Have you correctly allocated resources to your guests?
  • Can you re-balance workloads over the available hosts to reduce over-utilization risk?
  • Should you add more hosts?
  • Are your policy settings correct for the selected environment?

Report Name

Description

Clusters with Insufficient Capacity

This report shows which clusters are at risk in the environment due to insufficient infrastructure to support the current workloads.

The report provides the primary resource constraint for each of the clusters. Based on this information, you can then reduce risk by adding resources, moving workloads, or when appropriate, modifying the policy.

The 90-day historical report provides a view of clusters at risk over time.

See Clusters with Insufficient Capacity Reports.

Hosts at Risk

This report shows the number of host servers at risk in the environment due to having too many workload placements.

The report provides rebalancing recommendations that can be performed to reduce the number of host servers at risk.

The 90-day historical reports provide a view of hosts at risk over time.

See Hosts at Risk Reports.

Undersized Guests

This report shows the number of guests at risk in the environment due to being under-sized.

The report provides memory, CPU and per disk bump-up recommendations to reduce the number of guests at risk.

The 90-day historical report provides a view of guests at risk over time.
