Using Workload Balancing Reports for Tasks

May 03, 2013
Important: Workload Balancing (WLB) and its functionality has been removed from XenServer version 6.2 and higher. Applications, code, or usage that depend WLB will not function in XenServer version 6.2 and higher. See CTX137333 for details.

The Workload Balancing reports can help you perform capacity planning, determine virtual-machine health, and evaluate the effectiveness of your configured threshold levels.

Evaluating the effectiveness of your performance thresholds

You can use the Pool Health report to evaluate the effectiveness of your optimization thresholds. Workload Balancing provides default threshold settings. However, you might need to adjust these defaults for them to provide value in your environment. If you do not have the thresholds adjusted to the correct level for your environment, Workload Balancing recommendations might not be appropriate for your environment.

Troubleshooting administrative changes

You can use the Pool Audit Trail report to determine not only the source (that is, user account) of problematic changes but also the event or task that user performed.
