About Performance Monitoring

The Performance tab in XenCenter provides real time monitoring of performance statistics across resource pools as well as graphical trending of virtual and physical machine performance.

  • You can view up to 12 months of performance data and zoom in to take a closer look at activity spikes. To learn more, see Viewing performance data.
  • By default, graphs showing CPU, memory, network I/O and disk I/O are displayed on the tab. However, you can add more performance data and change the appearance of the graphs. To learn more, see Configuring performance graphs
  • Performance alerts can be generated when CPU, memory usage, network, storage throughput, or VM disk activity go over a specified threshold on a managed server, virtual machine, or storage repository. For more information, see Configuring performance alerts.

Note: Full performance data is only available for virtual machines with XenServer paravirtualized drivers (XenServer Tools) installed.
