The existence of VMware vRealize® Operations Management Pack™ for NSX is a known fact. Until a couple of weeks ago, I hadn’t seen a demo of the integration between these two products, and my assumption was that there are “some stats” that can be analyzed in the vRealize Operations Management Pack GUI.
The demo that was given to me was more than impressive. vRealize Operations Management Pack definitely saves a lot of time when your VMware NSX® environment needs to be understood and analyzed to find misconfiguration or malfunctioning components.
After discussing powerful vRealize Operations Manager functionality with my NSX customers, I realized that I’m not alone and that a blog post would be an eye opener for many NSX administrators.
The vRealize Operations Management Pack can be found on VMware Solution Exchange; go to https://solutionexchange.vmware.com/store/products/management-pack-for-nsx-for-vsphere-3-0-x?src=vmw_so_vex_pmcas_1152 and hit the Try button. The install is done from the vRealize Operations Manager interface and is pretty straightforward.
You can find two vRealize Operations Management Packs on Solution Exchange. VMware publishes NSX MP v2.x and v3.x simultaneously. This write is based on version 3.x. The recommendation is to use NSX MP 2.x only if NSX-V is at the level below 6.1.X version.
