  • 1.  Zones probe for Solaris Host and VMs

    Posted Feb 08, 2019 01:26 PM



    We have installed robots on each individual Solaris VM, but we are now considering installing a robot and the Zones probe on the Host (or Global zone).

    We have a few questions regarding this:

    1. Will we gain a new perspective on processor, memory, queues, etc, by monitoring the VMs from the Zones probe? Since each robot (inside a VM) will only see its own resources, we thought the Zones probe might shows us the overall metrics on the host.
    2. How does the probe collect metrics? Will these QoS metrics collide with those collected by each VM's robot (cdm probe)?
    3. Do we have to add all the VMs (as resources) to each host?


    Does anyone use Zones probe and also (simultaneously) have robots installed on each VM?

    Reviewing the documentation for both probes it is hard to tell for sure, but it does look like there will be some overlap. So since it seems no one in the community has done it, it would have to be tested.
