Product Details

HYCU SCOM Management Pack for Nutanix (HYCU's SCOM MP for Nutanix) enables IT teams to monitor Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure within Microsoft Systems Center Operations Manager (SCOM) and discover business critical applications, such as Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, formerly XenApp and XenDesktop; Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL running on Nutanix VMs. It provides an extensive set of features needed by IT for health, availability, reporting, infrastructure and application performance monitoring.

On top of this, HYCU’s SCOM MP for Nutanix includes also Nutanix-Citrix SuperPack, which is free for HYCU's customers of Nutanix MP. Nutanix-Citrix SuperPack is a set of dashboards corellating health and performance of data collected by Citrix SCOM Management Pack for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops and HYCU's SCOM MP for Nutanix, which provides end-to-end visibility over entire Citrix application stack on Nutanix.

HYCU’s SCOM Management Pack for Nutanix provides the following:

  • Discovers, visualizes and monitors Nutanix clusters, blocks, hosts, disks, protection domains, remote sites, virtual machines, storage pools and containers.
  • Identifies all Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL environments running on Nutanix clusters with identification of VMs hosting them and their roles.
  • Provides reports about Nutanix hardware resources, capacity sizing and right sizing of VMs.
  • Instantly alerts and provides information of top processes running on VM by resource consumption in case of high VM resource utilization.
  • Provides overview dashboards for consolidated view, summarized state and identification of resource bottlenecks or other issues for Nutanix clusters, storage pools, containers, hosts, VMs and data protection.
  • Nutanix-Citrix Superpack, which provides correlation of performance information from Citrix SCOM MP for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops and HYCU's SCOM MP for Nutanix to identify potential resource bottlenecks in Citrix delivery stack.

Nutanix-Citrix SuperPack includes the following dashboards correlating information from Citrix SCOM Management Pack for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops and HYCU's SCOM MP for Nutanix:

  • Citrix Delivery Goups and Nutanix Resources

Dashboard correlates load and logon latency for Citrix delivery groups running on Nutanix with resource utilization of Nutanix VMs hosting it and resource utilization of hosting Nutanix cluster. SCOM engineers can now quickly pinpoint cause of increased logon duration on decreased load index for selected group, which can originate in Nutanix resource bottlenecks or low SSD Vs HDD ratio on Nutanix.

  • Citrix Server OS Machines and Nutanix Resources

Dashboard identifies server OS machines belonging to selected Citrix delivery group and correlates them with Nutanix VMs and Nutanix cluster resource utilization. SCOM engineers can quickly pinpoint potential VM resource bottleneck or cluster resource bottleneck, which impacts the delivery group.

  • Citrix Logon Duration and Nutanix Resources

Dashboard correlates historic logon duration trend for selected Citrix site with the historic resource utilization of hosting Nutanix cluster. SCOM engineers can quickly identify an impact of increased Nutanix resource utilization on logon duration for individual Citrix site.

  • Citrix Sessions and Nutanix Resources

Dashboard correlates historic trend of active sessions for selected Citrix site with the historic trend of resource utilization for hosting Nutanix cluster. SCOM engineers can now see the impact of inreased active sessions for Citrix site on Nutanix resources that will help them decide whether they need to add more resources to Nutanix cluster to handle this load.

  • Citrix Server OS Machines Storage Health

Dashboard detects the overprovisioning of Nutanix storage where Citrix Server OS machines are hosted and prevents situations, where Citrix Server OS machines in delivery groups would run out of Nutanix storage due to overprovisioning Nutanix storage.
