Get Proactive with Top-Level Health Analysis

No more constant interruptions and “alarm fatigue.” Get ahead of the game with Executive Reports that highlight the most pressing concerns in your infrastructure.

Plus, rely on weekly analysis delivered straight to your inbox every Monday – detailing significant changes and trends that might impact overall health.

Stay Ahead of Capacity & Performance

Rely on automated alerts to always know about devices nearing capacity and performance thresholds.

Look ahead with bar graph reports that succinctly display:

  • servers over (or approaching) CPU / memory / disk utilization thresholds,
  • clusters over capacity,
  • days remaining until VMs reach capacity,
  • storage over utilization / over provisioned.

Streamline Remediation

No one likes the co-worker who points out problems but not solutions.

We’re not that co-worker. We recommend action steps for every alert and enable them through ServiceNow integration.

From right-sizing workloads to optimizing cost savings to enhancing performance, we’re looking out for it all.

Infrastructure Health & Monitoring Case Studies

Daily Health Alerts

Daily Health Alerts Reduced Capacity Ticket Submissions by 98%

Enterprise IT health monitoring can feel like a constant game of whack-a-mole. By using Visual One Intelligence™, this company took control of their storage health and reduced user requests for storage space by over 98% in just one year.

Detailed capacity planning

Capacity Alerts Prevented a $1M Purchase

An unexpected alert seemed to contradict this team’s capacity planning forecasts. In the end, the alert showed them something they missed – and helped them save big.

Infrastructure Health Monitoring FAQs

Visual One Intelligence™ offers consolidated alerting, a practice that relies on once-daily data collections to consolidate alerts and warnings into daily reports – instead of constant interruptions that harm productivity and create cultures of reactivity.

By using consolidated alerting, clients have seen dramatic improvements in their ability to plan ahead and address the root causes of potential problems before they become actual problems. For example, one client reduced tickets requesting more capacity by over 98% in one year – simply because they used consolidated alerting to identify and address devices approaching capacity thresholds before they surpassed them.

Importantly, there is next-to-no data quality difference between consolidated alerting and real-time monitoring. In one study performed with a client, the client observed 99% consistency between data collected once per day vs. data collected once every five minutes.

The only real difference? Consolidated alerting takes up less of your time and provides fewer interruptions.

Visual One Intelligence™ monitors for over 100 types of alerts and indicators that help you gauge the health and performance of your storage infrastructure – as well as prevent outages, slowdowns, failures, and misconfigurations. These alerts are identified by both Visual One Intelligence and by storage vendors themselves as important best practice metrics relating to topics such as:

  • Configuration and Setup
  • Balance
  • Server Volume Mapping
  • Errors & Other Alerts
  • Storage Layout
  • Volume / Snapshots

Examples of common alerts include:

  • Storage over utilization / over provisioned
  • Servers over / approaching utilization thresholds
  • Host with no LUNs
  • Failed drives
  • Host with no storage mapped
  • Multiple firmware levels
  • Low VM build capacity
  • Data stores / hosts with high disk / memory utilization
  • ESX hosts with different speeds in same cluster
  • And many more

Visual One Intelligence™ customers have found unique ways to leverage our reporting analytics – including for aspects of internal security. For example, one client uses performance trend charts to look for sudden and unexpected spikes in workloads – which could be a potential indicator of ransomware given certain other conditions.
