  • performance object charting in 1hr, 4hr, 24hr, and 7 day views;
  • ability to check the operational state of VMware tools, including an indication for out-of-date versions and the ability to install an updated version in a single click;
  • guest snapshot management, including the ability to create and revert snapshots, view an inventory of snapshots and view a user audit trail, and alert when a snapshot exceeds a predetermined size;
  • audit trail of commands issued on hosts and virtual machines, including the command status;
  • hardware-level monitoring, including the ability to alert on any hardware subsystem where a failure is detected;
  • datastore usage is displayed in a 7 day reporting map of datastore consumption, including a breakdown of that consumption.
