vRealize Operations Management Pack for VMware Integrated OpenStack | 22 APRIL 2021 | Build 17864292

What's in the Release Notes

The release notes cover the following topics:

Introduction

The vRealize Operations Management Pack for VMware Integrated OpenStack extends the management capabilities of the vRealize Operations platform to provide operational control of VMware Integrated OpenStack environments.

What's New

There are no enhancements in the functionality of this Management Pack.

  • vRealize Operations Management Pack for VMware Integrated OpenStack 6.1 can run in Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 enabled mode for better security. 
  • vRealize Operations Management Pack for VMware Integrated OpenStack 6.1 works with vRealize Operations Manager in both FIPS enabled mode and FIPS disabled mode.

Scalability

The Management Pack for VMware Integrated OpenStack has been tested up to a scale of 3,000 objects with acceptable results. It is expected that the theoretical object scale limit of this management pack will match that of the vRealize Operations platform. We recommend that close observation of system health be taken when deploying in environments that significantly exceed these test limits.

For a large-scale environment containing 10,000 objects (5000 of them active and the other 5000 inactive), the collection time will be approximately 18 minutes. If you disable the ceilometer service in VMware Integrated OpenStack 6.1, the collection time will improve.

Compatibility

For compatibility between products, please refer to the VMware Product Interoperability Matrices.

Recommendations

  • Ensure that the VMware Integrated OpenStack environment and the vRealize Operations Manager are all in the same time zone and use the same NTP servers.
  • Disable Ceilometer as monitoring is done through Management Pack for VMware Integrated OpenStack. If the ceilometer is enabled, then ensure that you configure the Ceilometer to sample data every 5 minutes.
  • Do not configure Management Pack for NSX for Multi-Hypervisor even though it has been installed along with VMware Integrated OpenStack Management Pack 6.1.
