Virtual machine sprawl is a critical issue that most organizations usually face after virtualizing their environments. Users tend to create a lot of virtual machines for temporary purposes, use them for a small period of time and then leave on the server, consuming power, disk space, and other physical resources.
Netwrix Virtual Machine Sprawl Tracker is a FREE tool that automatically detects inactive and unused virtual machines to prevent virtual machine sprawl. The tool sends scheduled reports about inactive VMs based on their resource usage. Data center administrators can use such reports to justify decommissioning of unused virtual machines and regain wasted physical resources.
Product features and benefits:
- Monitors all VMs in a virtual environment
- Sends scheduled reports by e-mail with list of inactive virtual machines.
- Configurable inactivity thresholds: virtual network and disk usage, inactivity time, etc.
- Supports VMware Virtual Center
Two editions are available: freeware and commercial. Please contact Netwrix Corporation at www.netwrix.com for more information.
