    Monitoring Juniper Networks Devices from vROps Overview

    After you add and configure Juniper Networks Data Center Switching Management Pack for vROps, vROps discovers and builds the data center network managed by Network Director in vROps. vROps also adds five dashboards to the vROps Dashboards list. Each dashboard contains various dashboard widgets that assist administrators to monitor and manage multiple data center from vROps without having to switch to a different network management application.

    Following are the dashboards that vROps adds to the Dashboards list:

    • Juniper Infrastructure Overview—Enables you to view the topology and monitor the health of the data center network, by providing widgets. The Datacenter Overview widget displays all the data centers, underlying fabrics, hosts, and the connected virtual machines. If you click any data center to select it, the widget highlights the fabrics, hosts, and virtual machines that are part of that data center. You can view the top alerts, if any, for the selected data center in the Top Alerts widget. The Object Relationship widget displays the connectivity between the data center and the fabrics.

      You can also filter the Datacenter Overview widget and the Object Relationship widget by two criteria—Health and Risk.

    • Juniper Network Fabric Monitoring—Enables you to monitor Juniper devices that are part of a data center, by providing dashboard widgets. You can view the list of fabrics that are part of the data center in the Network Fabrics widget. You can then select a fabric from the list to see the CPU utilization and memory utilization of the fabric in the CPU Utilization History and Forecast widget and the Memory Utilization History and Forecast widget respectively.
    • Juniper Network Fabric Member Monitoring—Enables you to monitor the fabric members of each Juniper device, that is part of a data center, by providing dashboard widgets. You can view the list of fabric members that are part of the device in the Network Fabric Members widget. You can then select a fabric member from the list to view the CPU utilization and memory utilization of the member in the CPU Utilization History and Forecast widget and the Memory Utilization History and Forecast widget respectively.
    • Juniper Top Network Fabrics—Enables you to view and identify potential performance issues in your data center. The dashboard provides four widgets—The Top Network Fabrics by CPU Utilization widget, the Top Network Fabrics by Memory Utilization, the Top Noisiest Network Fabrics based on Alerts widget, and the Top Volatile Network Fabrics based on Metrics widget. You can click a row to view more details about that fabric and possible causes for the vulnerability of the fabric, if any.
    • Juniper Top Network Fabric Members—Enables you to view the performance of network fabric members, in terms of CPU utilization, memory utilization, alerts, and metrics. This dashboard provides four widgets—Top Network Fabric Members by CPU Utilization widget, Top Network Fabric Members by Memory Utilization widget, Top Noisiest Network Fabric Members based on Alerts widget, and Top Volatile Network Fabric Members based on Metrics widget.

    Note: Juniper Networks Data Center Switching Management Pack for vROps supports only fabric devices—Virtual Chassis, Virtual Chassis Fabric, QFabric, or Layer 3 Fabric—that are part of a datacenter in Network Director.

    When you add Juniper Networks Data Center Switching Management Pack for vROps, the threshold values that each of these wizards use to generate alarms and the polling interval at which vROps collects monitoring data from Network Director are preset. However, you might want to modify these values based on your network requirements and traffic pattern. You can modify all port-based thresholds in Network Director and all CPU and memory related thresholds in vROps. See Configuring Threshold Alarms in Network Director, Configuring Thresholds in vROps and Modifying the Polling Interval in vROps for details on how to modify these values.
