A Pod is a logical container that consists of one or more pools and additional resources needed to create the cloud environment, such as network containers and storage infrastructure.

For more information on the Pod tab, refer to the following sections:

Viewing details for all pods in your cloud infrastructure

The Pod tab under BMC CLM displays information on all pods contained in the selected cloud. You can access the Pod tab either by navigating directly to it from Views > All Views > Cloud > BMC CLM > Pod, or you can also get to it from the Cloud tab by clicking the Pod List link under the Configuration Data table.

The Pod tab contains the Pods table that displays the following information for each Pod.

Pods table: Description of columns

Column

Description

Name

Hyper-linked name of the pod. For more information, see Viewing details for a particular pod.

CPU Capacity [GHz]

Total CPU capacity of the pod, measured Gigahertz.

CPU Used [GHz]Total CPU used by the pod, measured in Gigahertz.

Memory Capacity [GB]

Total physical memory capacity of the pod, measured in Gigabytes.

Memory Used [GB]Total physical memory used by the pod, measured in Gigabytes.

Datastore Capacity [GB]

Total capacity of the datastore, measured in Gigabytes

Datastore Used [GB]Total capacity of the datastore currently in use, measured in Gigabytes
Days to SaturationProjected amount of time before the pod runs out of available capacity

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

Viewing capacity summary details for pods

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

Cloud tab: Capacity Summary table

Metric

Description

CPU Utilization [%]

Percentage of total CPU utilized by the pod.

Mem Utilization [%]

Percentage of total physical memory utilized by the pod.

Datastore Space Util [%]

Percentage of total datastore capacity used by the pod. (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
