Solaris views

Solaris views enable you to view and manage the capacity of a virtualized infrastructure running on a Solaris environment. These views present key capacity metrics and charts for Solaris dynamic system domains (DSDs), logical domains (LDOMs), and Zone.

You can use these views to see the total capacity, used capacity, remaining capacity, growth trend for CPU and memory subsystems.

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.

Certified data sources

The certified data sources for these views are as follows:

  • BMC - TrueSight Capacity Optimization Gateway VIS files parser
  • BMC - TrueSight Operations Management extractors

You must configure and run one of these ETL modules to import data into the view. For more information, see BMC - TrueSight Capacity Optimization Gateway VIS files parser and  BMC - TrueSight Operations Management 10.1/10.5/10.7/11.0 Generic extractor.

If you are importing data from an ETL module other than the certified data source, then ensure that you have all the metrics populated in the ETL module so that the view shows the data.


Certain metrics are required for these views. If the metrics are not imported into the TrueSight Capacity Optimization Data Warehouse, then corresponding columns are blank. Particularly for Data Explorer view for this platform, you must import specific metrics for some of the charts to be available.

For a list of all the metrics in a view, see the required topic in the following views:

Data visibility

The views display data for all systems of the following types:

  • Virtual Machine - Solaris DSD
  • Virtual Machine - Solaris LDOM
  • Virtual Host - Solaris
  • Virtual Machine - Zone
