VMworld 2018 presentations

As requested, you can find the deck here. They are in PowerPoint, not PDF.

First session was Operationalize Your World, where you learn about transforming from reactive, complaint-based operations to proactive, insight-based operations. It’s using Performance SLA and KPI. You get KPI defined for VM, Cluster and Multi-Tier Applications. Below is an example of how a VM KPI is calculated.

The second session was vSphere counters deep dive. It does not duplicate information generally covered in vSphere documentations or whitepaper. For example, I explained that measuring memory is hard. MS Windows actually include non active pages in its In Use counter. This explains why vCenter VM Active RAM counter is lower.

Hope you found the 2 sessions useful!
