Monitoring virtual cpu capacity
Hi, we are using today many types of virtualization servers, VMware,
IBM Lpars, Xen and others. The physical hardware could be heterogeneous,
i mean, we use for example: power processors, x86 or risc.
Suppose we are using a VMware cluster, it can automaticaly move the virtual
machine an other fisical hardware, on any problem.
If i was monitoring the cpu use, it can be change, suppose we are use diferent hardware. If i was consuming 20% of cpu and then, on the change, it was consuming 80% and i only see the cpu graph, i has a problem.
Suppose this case, we are running a lpar partition on IBM system, we can change the cpu allocation automticaly. If i see only the graph and the cpu use was 30% and the next time was 90%, i have a problem.
This case es very common situation, when the users are out and we calculate de interest rate for example.
Is It possible get a metric with the system capacity?, I mean, amount of floating points operations or some thing similar to a benchmark. Any thing to determine when the system was changed.
