Hosts page in the Solaris DSD view

The Hosts page in the Solaris DSD Host view provides an overview of all available Solaris DSD hosts in the Solaris virtualization environment, including details about CPU and memory utilization, unused resources and more.

To access the page, in the TrueSight console navigation pane, select Capacity > Views > Virtualization > Solaris > DSD, and in the Solaris DSD page, click the Hosts tab.

The Hosts table lists all Solaris DSD hosts in the selected domain.

By default, some columns are hidden. You can show or hide columns using the action menuthat is located next to the table title.

Hosts table

Each row in the table represents a host and displays the following metrics: 

Column

Description

Statistical
Type
Metric

Host

Name of the DSD host.

Last valueNAME

CPU [cores]

Number of CPU cores in the host.

Last valueCPU_NUM

Computed metric- Based on 95th Percentile of CPU usageComputed using CPU_UTILMHZ and CPU_MHZ

CPU Util [%]

CPU usage of the host expressed in percentage normalized by the physical processors of the host.

95th Percentile CPU_UTIL

Total Spec Rating

The total SPEC benchmark performance rating of the host, based on the CPU model and number of CPU cores.

Last valueBYBENCHMARK_VALUE[SPECINTRATE2006]  

Unused Spec Rating

Unused SPEC rating of the host, based on CPU utilization and the total SPEC rating.

Computed metric- Based on 95th Percentile of CPU usageComputed using CPU_UTIL and BYBENCHMARK_VALUE[SPECINTRATE2006]  

Memory Util [%]

Percentage of memory used by the host normalized by the total memory of the host.

95th Percentile MEM_UTIL
Real Memory Util [%]Real memory utilization of the Solaris host, excluding the amount of memory used by the buffer cache, normalized by the memory configured for the Solaris host.95th PercentileMEM_REAL_UTIL

Memory [GB]

Total memory available to the DSD host.

Last valueTOTAL_REAL_MEM

Unused Memory [GB]

Unused memory available to the DSD host.

Computed metric- Based on 95th Percentile of Memory usageComputed using MEM_USED and TOTAL_REAL_MEM

Disk I/O Rate [MB/s]

Disk input/output rate, measured in Megabytes per second, aggregated from the partitions in the frame.

95th PercentileDISK_TRANSFER_RATE

Network Rate [Mbit/s]

Network transmitted/received rate, measured in Megabits per second, aggregated from the partitions in the frame.

95th PercentileNET_BIT_RATE
Configured DSDs

Total number of configured domains in the virtual host.

Last value Count of entities with relationship VH_CONTAINS_GM 

To view details for a specific virtual host

To view the details page for a particular Solaris host, click its (hyper-linked) name under the Host column. You can use the sorting and filtering options on the page to find a specific host. 

For more information, see Sorting a table in the TrueSight console and Using filtering options in views in the TrueSight console.

The Host Details page displays information for the selected domain under the following sections or panels:

Section or PanelDescription
Summary page

A quick graphical summary of the CPU and memory utilization, and disk and network I/O rate of the host. Core metrics for the selected entity are displayed as analysis charts, depending on available data. At the bottom of each chart is a link that takes you to the Data Explorer view for the specific resource type, and displays charts and information for a larger set of metrics.

The data displayed in Data Explorer view charts for any resource part of this view category, is based on the time filter that is applied to the primary view in this tab. You can select other time filter options to view charts over a different time resolution.

For more information, see DSD Host page in the Solaris Data Explorer view.

Configuration Details pageConfiguration information about the host.
