9.1 Monitoring
Monitoring the components of a vCloud Director implementation is essential to the health of a vCloud environment, and is necessary to maintain capacity and meet service level agreements. This section provides recommendations regarding what systems and associated objects to monitor, and readily available tools that can be used to extract health-related metrics. Details of specific limits or thresholds are not identified here as they are available in the product documentation. This document does not attempt to provide specifics for setting up a monitoring solution as various service providers and enterprises may have very different monitoring solutions in place to be integrated.
