VMware Labs presents its latest fling – vBenchmark

vBenchmark is a simple application that allows you to measure key datacenter operational and efficiency metrics, the application provides a snapshot of these metrics for your entire virtualized environment.

vBenchmark measures the performance of a VMware virtualized infrastructure across three categories:

  • Efficiency: for example, how much physical RAM are you saving by using virtualization?
  • Operational Agility: for example, how much time do you take on average to provision a VM?
  • Quality of Service: for example, how much downtime do you avoid by using availability features?
  • vBenchmark provides a succinct set of metrics in these categories for your VMware virtualized private cloud. Additionally, if you choose to contribute your metrics to the community repository, vBenchmark also allows you to compare your metrics against those of comparable companies in your peer group. The data you submit is anonymized and encrypted for secure transmission.

    Key Features:

  • Retrieves metrics across one or multiple vCenter servers
  • Allows inclusion or exclusion of hosts at the cluster level
  • Allows you to save queries and compare over time to measure changes as your environment evolves
  • Allows you to define your peer group by geographic region, industry and company size, to see how you stack up
