View Virtual Machine details

The Virtual Machines page, available from the side panel for a selected cluster, provides information about each active VM associated with the cluster.

In addition to conventional filtering options that are available on all SolidFire Active IQ pages, the Virtual Machines page has quick filter buttons that you can select to determine common VM states of availability.

The information bar provides a quick overview of the following data:

  • Virtual Machines: The number and various availability states of VMs associated with the storage cluster.

  • Status: The number of warnings or errors for the VMs.

  • Provisioned Resources: The total storage and memory resources for all VMs associated with the storage cluster.
