Monitor SQL Server on VMware 

IgniteVM Multi-Layer Disk Waits Short

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer VM Option for VMware  (formerly Confio IgniteVM) helps IT organizations remove the risk of moving critical SQL Server databases from physical to virtual server environments. For use by DBA teams assigned to ensuring service and availability of the VMware hosted databases, Database Performance Analyzer VM Option restores the accurate resource monitoring lost when physical servers are replaced by virtual ones. 

Database Performance Analyzer VM Option is the only SQL Server monitoring tool that links database response performance with the multiple layers of the virtual server architecture. It shows the DBA team what the application response delays are, and what are contributing causes at the instance, virtual and physical levels.

Transitioning production SQL Server databases to virtual servers is a step that IT organizations are taking cautiously because of concern over continuous availability, I/O bottlenecks, and performance degradation. Making Database Performance Analyzer VM Option project is a way to ensure the database service does not suffer with the move to virtual servers.
