Collecting data

TrueSight Capacity Optimization provides two ways of collecting data for supporting TrueSight Capacity Optimization use cases:

Connectors or ETL modulesCapacity Agents

Connectors can integrate with various data sources by means of ETL modules, that are based on Extract-Transform-Load (ETL) technology. 

For more information, see Overview of ETLs.

By leveraging the Gateway Server, operating system data is collected from managed nodes that are running capacity agents. 

For more information, see Collecting data via Capacity Agents.

Collecting data for business services

For business service details to be displayed on the TrueSight Capacity Optimization pages, you must first import the data related to your business services into the Capacity Optimization database. For more information, see Collecting data for business services, applications, and service pools.

After you install  TrueSight Cloud Cost Control , you must configure data collection before using the product features. With TrueSight Cloud Cost Control , you can analyze the current and future costs and utilization of your multi-cloud infrastructure based on data that is extracted from various data sources.

TrueSight Cloud Cost Control supports the following data sources and technologies:

Public cloudOn-premises
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Microsoft Azure
  • Google Cloud Platform
  • Hyper-V
  • KVM
  • Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV)
  • Standalone or Virtual Node
  • vSphere
  • Xen

Data from these sources is collected by using ETL modules, which are based on the Extract-Transform-Load (ETL) technology. You must configure the required ETL modules and run them to collect data. The collected data is stored in the Capacity Optimization database.
