Introduction

Nutanix resources are used in private, public, and distributed clouds. These resources empower IT to deliver applications and data that power their businesses.

Remote discovery and monitoring of Nutanix HCI workloads are supported which provide visibility into the health and performance of Nutanix HCI elements (clusters, hosts, storage controllers, and VMs).

Once integration is configured, all infrastructure elements are discovered and and displayed as a hierarchical view on the Infrastructure page. Global monitoring templates are used to enable monitoring and alerts for supported Nutanix elements.

Monitoring templates are available for monitoring the following Nutanix HCI elements:

  • Nutanix clusters
  • Nutanix hosts
  • Nutanix storage controller (data stores)
  • Virtual Machines (VMs)

All supported metrics are available from Monitoring > Templates. Alternatively, search for the Nutanix template to view related metrics.
