Monitoring VMware vCenter with Sightline

Sightline offers in-depth monitoring of your entire virtual environment. We utilize two different strategies to provide you with the best overall view of your virtual environment. First, we look at your vCenter Servers to provides an overview of everything you have in your virtual space. Second, we utilize our Power Agents to provide an in depth view of your mission critical systems and applications. This gives you the ability to set workloads and use Interface Agents to provide low level and process data so you can proactively act to keep these systems and applications performing at the necessary levels.
