StatsFeeder: An Extensible Statistics Collection Framework for Virtualized Environments
Although virtualization has eased the day-to-day lives of IT administrators, analyzing the performance of virtualized infrastructure remains very difficult. Admittedly, collecting statistics for a large number of servers is not a new problem. Neither is analyzing the virtualization performance of an individual virtual machine or the performance of a multi-tier virtualized application. The challenge lies in building tools to enable all three to occur at the same time and provide meaningful information for end users, many of whom are not virtualization experts.
