VxRail Manager dashboard displays storage, CPU, and memory utilization at the cluster, appliance, or individual node level. It also incorporates functionality for hardware serviceability and appliance platform lifecycle management. For instance, it guides systems administrators through adding new appliances to an existing cluster, and it automatically detects new appliances when they come online. VxRail Manager is also used to replace failed disk drives without disrupting availability, to generate and download diagnostic log bundles, and to apply VMware updates or software patches non-disruptively across VxRail nodes.
VxRail is fully integrated with vCenter Server, accessible though the vSphere Web Client. Together, VxRail Manager and vSphere Web Client provide complete access to daily operations.
The following areas of the Dashboard are visible upon login:
Lets take a closer look at each one of these Dashboard features.
This part of the lab is presented as a Hands-on Labs Interactive Simulation. This will allow you to experience steps which are too time-consuming or resource intensive to do live in the lab environment. In this simulation, you can use the software interface as if you are interacting with a live environment.
The orange boxes show where to click, and the left and right arrow keys can also be used to move through the simulation in either direction.
Note: this is a simulated lab. You will be unable to access the VxRail Live Community or browse all available Configuration options in this lab demonstration.
