The Cloud tab displays an overview about a cloud and its resources, such as pods, and also displays information such as CPU, memory, datastore utilization, cloud capacity summary, number of VMs, and detailed analysis charts for each subsystem. It also contains information about set thresholds for the currently selected Cloud.

Viewing detailed information about a cloud

After you select a cloud from the Clouds list, the Cloud tab is refreshed and displays a number of portlets such as analysis charts, contained elements, and utilization tables that display detailed resource and utilization information.

The following table describes each of these portlets in detail.

 BMC CLM view: Cloud portlets

Portlet name

Portlet type

Description

Cloud information

Information

Displays information such as cloud name, type, description and associated tags.
You can add tags to the cloud by clicking the  icon.

#VMs

Analysis chart

Displays the number of powered on\off VMs in a cloud for a particular period.
Click Maximize to view an enlarged version of the chart. Click Restore to return to the default view.

CPU Utilization

Analysis chart

Displays physical core CPU utilization (in MHz) and the total clock frequency of the cloud and its resources.
You can view the utilization pattern for a day or for every hour by clicking either the Day Profile or the Hourly tab.
Click Maximize to view an enlarged version of the chart. Click Restore to return to the default view.

Memory Utilization

Analysis chart

Displays physical memory versus real memory utilization (in GB) of the cloud and its resources.
Click Maximize to view an enlarged version of the chart. Click Restore to return to the default view.

Datastore space utilization

Analysis chart

Displays total datastore space utilization versus total datastores size of the cloud and its resources.
Click Maximize to view an enlarged version of the chart. Click Restore to return to the default view.

Configuration data

Table

Displays configuration information for cloud resources such as datastore size, available physical memory and CPU frequency along with their associated values.

Capacity Summary

Table

Displays utilization and other information such as vCPU parameters, theresholds, and saturation details for the cloud. For more information, see Viewing cloud capacity summary.

ThresholdsLinkPlaced right under the Capacity Summary table, clicking on the link takes you to the Thresholds page for the selected cloud. For more information, see Adding and managing thresholds.

Pod list

Link

Displays information for all pods contained in the cloud. For more information, see Pod.

Viewing capacity summary for a cloud

Each row in the Capacity Summary table corresponds to a metric summary value for the selected cloud and shows the following information.

Cloud tab: Capacity Summary table

Metric

Description

CPU Utilization [%]

Percentage of total CPU utilized by the resource.

Mem Utilization [%]

Percentage of total physical memory utilized by the resource.

Datastore Space Util [%]

Percentage of total datastore capacity used by the resource. (maximum value).

#vCPU ON

Total number of virtual CPU cores powered on.

vCPU Daily Trend

Daily growth rate of active vCPUs, measured in Number of vCPUs/day.

vCPU Residual Capacity

Number of additional vCPUs that can be added to the resource, based on the residual CPU capacity.

Days to Saturation

The projected amount of time before the resource runs out of available capacity.

Bottleneck Resource

The resource(s) predicted to cause performance bottlenecks.

For more information on the Days to Saturation and other indicator parameters used for metric computations in this view, see Indicators.

Right under the Capacity Summary table, there is a Thresholds link. If you click this link, you are redirected to the Thresholds page for the selected cloud. For more information, see Adding and viewing thresholds. To go back to the Cloud tab, click Back to BMC CLM located towards the top-right corner of the Thresholds page.

Using data filter and other controls in tables

You can export and filter the information that is displayed in tables to suit your need. For instance, you can show or hide columns, filter tables on particular domains, and so on.

For more information, see Exporting and filtering tables.
