Tuning performance and capacity management
As data centers virtualize a greater number of resources and scale for more workloads, two tasks become critical to ensure application performance: performance monitoring and capacity planning. Whether these servers are physical or virtual, performance monitoring is crucial to ensure that hardware can handle the workload, and capacity planning tools and techniques enable you to plan for peak loads and adjust for predicted changes in demand. In this series on monitoring and capacity planning, we explore the tools and best practices available to optimize a data center/private cloud environment and forestall performance issues.
