Terminology

InfiniBoxThe INFINIDAT storage system that InfiniMetrics connects to.
OVF / OVA
  • OVF (Open Virtualization Format) is an industry standard developed by VMware for distribution purposes.
    It describes, in XML format, metadata related to virtual machine image.
  • This format is supported, among other platforms, by VMware vCenter 4.0 and above.
  • The OVA contains an OVF file along with other files needed for the deployment of the virtual machine.

Installation prerequisites

The InfiniMetrics installation requires the following:

vSphereVersion 5.x and up

IP connectivity from the appliance

A note on storage requirements

The InfiniMetrics virtual appliance requires, by default, a 30GB virtual hard disk that is suitable for storing data of up to 4 InfiniBox systems with about 50 monitored entities (hosts, volumes) each. If these limits are surpassed, more storage will be required. Along with the added storage, it is also recommended to increase the VM's CPU allocation and RAM allocation to handle the increased load.

An alternative strategy is to increase the polling interval of the monitored entities. By increasing this interval from the default 10 seconds to 30 seconds, it is possible, for example, to triple the number of supported monitored entities without requiring additional disk space.

How to increase the disk space:
