Bridget Botelho Bridget Botelho Profile: Bridget Botelho

Portsmouth, NH-based VKernel announced availability of its Capacity Bottleneck Analyzer Virtual Appliance, which allows system administrators to see capacity issues in VMware ESX Server-based environments so they can make necessary changes for optimum performance.

Network bottlenecks are issues in virtual environments due to increased capacity from virtual machines. A number of networking vendors have developed network products specifically for virtual environments to alleviate these issues.

A newer vendor called Altor Networks Inc. introduced a Virtual Network Security Analyzer last month that also lets IT view what is happening in virtual environment.

VKernel’s software monitors CPU, memory and storage utilization trends in VMware ESX environments across hosts, clusters and resource pools. The virtual appliance gives users a single-screen management dashboard that displays all of the details on capacity to help plan for new hosts, clusters and resource pools. Users can also receive alerts via email and SNMP.

The VKernel Capacity Bottleneck Analyzer Virtual Appliance is currently available with pricing starting at $199 per CPU socket.
