Monitor your virtual infrastructure in SAM
You can use the Virtual Infrastructure Monitor (VIM) feature included in SAM to enable virtual monitoring directly from the Orion Web Console. For virtualization software requirements, see Supported versions.
Prerequisites for monitoring your virtual infrastructure include:
- ICMP is enabled on virtual servers (recommended).
- Credentials for the Orion server exist on ESX servers.
- Your virtual infrastructure was already discovered.
To learn more about using VIM to manage your virtual infrastructure, see Virtualization Manager (VMAN) online help. The Orion Platform Administrator Guide also contains details about monitoring virtual environments.
