Look what I found... Shiny new tool for the Beancounters?
V-Kernel adds functionality not available in Virtual Center such as Chargeback, Top down reporting on Resources used by multiple VMs to support Business Services, and Storage usage reporting.
In just a few minutes, with these Reports, you can :
Find out how much CPU, Memory, Network, and Storage each VM is consuming.
Understand Total Resource consumption by groups of VMs that support business applications such EMAIL, CRM, and others.
Generate Chargeback reports that are based on actual consumption of resources in your environment.
V-Kernel is a Virtual Appliance. It does not require installation or extensive configuration. Simply drop this appliance into one of your ESX servers and specify which servers you want to report on. That´s it!
