vRealize Business for Cloud categorizes all the ESXi hosts according to their cluster configuration. For ESXi hosts that are not clustered, categorization is based on five parameters, which are server model, CPU model, core count, CPU capacity, and memory size.

Procedure

  1. Log in to vRealize Business for Cloud as an administrator.
    • https://vRealize_Automation_host_name/vcac/org/tenant_URL (for the vRealize Automation integrated setup)

    • https://vRealize_Business_for_Cloud_host_name/itfm-cloud(for the vRealize Business for Cloud standalone setup)

  2. Click Business Management.
  3. Expand Operational Analysis, click Private Cloud (vSphere).
  4. Click Edit Utilization.

Results

The Server Clusters table provides information on the basis of the cluster configuration.

Table 1. Server Clusters

Category

Description

Type

Displays the icon that identifies whether this is a group of clustered or unclustered hosts.

Description

Displays the name of the cluster. If the ESXi hosts are not clustered, vRealize Business for Cloud displays the server model, CPU model, core count, CPU capacity, and memory size.

Data Center Name

Displays the name of the data center in which the server cluster resides.

Servers

Displays the total number of servers belonging to a cluster. You can click on the total count to see the server IP address and its description.

Utilization % of Capacity

Displays the percentage of utilization of the cluster's CPU and RAM capacity in terms of gigahertz and gigabytes respectively for the current month. The utilization is represented in different colors:

  • Green represents the utilized capacity

  • White represents the allocated capacity

  • Grey represents the unreserved capacity

Total Cost

Displays the total cost of the cluster.

Expected CPU utilization %

Displays the percentage of expected CPU utilization. You can set the expected CPU utilization. For more information, see Set the Expected CPU and Memory Utilization for the Host.

Expected memory utilization %

Displays the percentage of expected memory utilization. You can set the expected memory utilization. For more information, see Set the Expected CPU and Memory Utilization for the Host.

Base rates

Depending on the expected CPU utilization value that you have defined, vRealize Business for Cloud calculates the base rate for the cluster and displays the information for CPU and RAM in terms of dollar per gigahertz and dollar per gigabytes respectively.

Unallocated Costs

Derived by multiplying the unused capacity of CPU and RAM by CPU and RAM base rates. Here,

unused capacity = total capacity - (used + reserved capacity).
Note:

The unused capacity is displayed as zero if total capacity is less than addition of used and reserved capacity.
