- Workload Balancing Basic Concepts
- Connecting to Workload Balancing
Workload Balancing captures data for resource performance on virtual machines and physical hosts. It uses this data, combined with the preferences you set, to provide optimization and placement recommendations. Workload Balancing stores performance data in an internal database: the longer Workload Balancing runs, the better its recommendations become.
Workload Balancing recommends moving virtual-machine workloads across a pool to get the maximum efficiency, which means either performance or density depending on your goals. Within a Workload Balancing context:
Workload Balancing lets you modify settings for placement (performance or density), power management, automation, metric weightings, and performance thresholds.
Workload Balancing will not conflict with High Availability settings; High Availability settings always take precedence.
