The new version of Xangati for ESX was designed specifically to make the installation process as simple as possible and provides VI administrators with the following benefits and features:
- A new and simplified GUI-based appliance set up – for getting the appliance addressed, powered-up and on the network – launched directly from the vCenter console tab;
- Standardization on one virtual appliance covering dynamic and static IP addressed data center segments;
- Streamlining of the steps required to enable Xangati to gather and summarize traffic traversing a vSwitch;
- Fifty percent reduction in the screens required to get to a working Xangati UI.
Available immediately – at absolutely no cost – Xangati for ESX gives VI administrators the ability to implement its real-time monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities for both server virtualization and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments.
A fully-functioning management tool, Xangati for ESX goes far beyond the capabilities of other free VMware or trial software tools by providing VI administrators with comprehensive and robust performance management that includes: continuous real-time insights into VMs and the ESX; a superior navigational drill-down user interface (UI) presentation; multiple data sources, including traffic traversing vSwitches and the VMware API; and Xangati’s unique and acclaimed DVR-recordings – allowing VI administrators to visually see and capture a problem through recordings triggered by VMware alerts.
Xangati for ESX works with VMware 3.5, 4.0, and 4.1 for ESX and ESXi. To download an enhanced version of the free Xangati for ESX tool and try it yourself, go to www.xangati.com/free-download. You can also watch a video describing the free Xangati for ESX for additional background.
Xangati, the emerging leader in Infrastructure Performance Management solutions, accelerates virtualization by providing critical VM visibility previously unavailable, enabling superior design, optimization and troubleshooting for the virtual infrastructure.
I will be posting my experience later of how the installation went.
