OpenStack view

The OpenStack view provides an overview of availability zones, host aggregates, hypervisors, and tenant capacity in terms of CPU, memory, and datastore utilization for each entity. It is based on cloud database structures and enables you to:

  • Track the capacity of each OpenStack entity in the cloud environment
  • Identify bottlenecks
  • Discover underutilized resources
  • Track resources that are, or will soon be, experiencing capacity shortfalls

You can access the views only after the administrator has completed the following tasks:

If you are new to views in the TrueSight console, first see Accessing and using capacity views in the TrueSight console.

To access the OpenStack view, in the TrueSight console navigation pane, select  > Capacity > Views > Cloud > OpenStack.
