You view and monitor the overall state of the vCloud Availability for Cloud-to-Cloud DR components in the vCloud Availability Portal. You can track all the vCloud Director organizations and their system usage.

Getting Information from the Home Dashboard

After you log in to the vCloud Availability Portal as a service provider, you can review the Home dashboard. It contains read-only information that presents a site health summary.

At the top of the dashboard you view a rolling bar with a service health status monitoring. You manage the rolling bar through the pause/resume button at the top right corner. Click the rolling bar to reveal all components, and their health status, in a drop down menu. While in the drop down menu, use the refresh button to trigger monitoring of the latest health status for the available components. You view Normal, Warning and Error service health status.

The Cloud Topology pane shows the incoming and outgoing vApps replications for both of the source and destination sites.

The vApp Workload Status pane lists the current health of vApps replications when this site is either a source or a destination site.

The VM Workload Information pane shows the health of the site you are currently logged in for VMs incoming and outgoing replications.

You can find information about the top three vCloud Director organizations. You can view the overall vCloud Director used storage by those organizations, and their vApps and VMs replication states.

The Provider vDC System Resource Utilization pane tracks how much storage, memory, and CPU is used from the allocated system resources.

Viewing Organizations

In the Orgs page, you track the number of vCloud Director organizations, usage of total storage, total pre-allocated CPU, and total pre-allocated memory for those organizations. You can also see the number of incoming and outgoing replications, and their state.

To see the specific information about replications assigned to a particular organization vDC, click the pose as icon for that organization. For more information on the pose as option, see Impersonate a Tenant.

Viewing Protected Workloads

The Incoming and Outgoing tabs in the DR Workloads page list DR workloads protected on source site1 (the host site you are currently logged in) and workloads protected to destination site2 respectively.

You use the filter icon in each column of the replications table to access specific read-only data on vDCs, source site, destination organization, workloads status and last updates for vApps replications. Use the search text field to filter incoming or outgoing replications by entering a vApp or a VM name.

The icon next to an incoming/outgoing vApp replication redirects you to the vCloud Director portal inventory to view a recovered or source vApp .

Monitoring Components and Resource Usage

You navigate to the Registration tab, part of the Administration page, to add a service component for monitoring. To register the component for monitoring, populate all fields in the Add Component window that relate to the component type you select from the Type drop down menu.

Edit or Delete components already registered for monitoring from the Actions column.

You navigate to the Configuration tab, part of the Administration page, to Edit the vDC resource usage threshold shared by CPU, memory and storage. Optionally, you enable tenant vDC monitoring.
