VMware Monitoring

The VMware monitoring module allows NeoLoad to monitor all the components in a VMware structure: vSphere, ESX and virtual machines (VM). The module collects statistics on the virtual server and host system, plus those specific to VMware itself.


  • Preconfigured Monitoring: Each module ships pre-configured with the performance counters tailored to your system.
  • Threshold Alerts: NeoLoad provides threshold values –derived from industry best practices- to raise the appropriate alerts.
  • Agentless Monitoring: The design of our monitoring modules, based on industry standards, ensures non-intrusive remote monitoring.
  • Real Time: The counter values and the threshold alerts are available as soon as the test is run.
  • Import: Import data from external monitoring tools.

Note: All the modules are included with the free edition.
