Power is a measure of the energy that is consumed by a physical device.
Rate of Resize
The Rate of Resize is a setting that determines how much of a recommended change Turbonomic will make in one action. When resizing resources for an entity, Turbonomic calculates the optimal values for those resources. But it does not necessarily make a change to those values in a single action. Turbonomic uses the Rate of Resize setting to determine how to make the change in a single action, as follows:
Ready Queue is the percentage of time that there is work to be done for VMs, but no physical CPU (Central Processing Unit) available on which to do it (i.e., all host CPUs are busy serving other VMs).
So, if you have 5 VMs with 4 VCPUs, and they’re on a 16 CPU host, that means that no more than 4 VMs can run a process at the same time. One of those VMs has to wait in a ready queue.
It is an on-prem commodity in the Turbonomic market, meaning it can be bought and sold.
Recommend (Action Mode)
Recommend is an Action Mode that directs Turbonomic to post only the actions that it generates, so you can review them and then execute the ones that are safe to execute outside the Turbonomic user interface (for example, from the given hypervisor).
Turbonomic posts the generated actions in the Pending Actions chart.
Regular Expression (Regex)
A Regular Expression (Regex) is a string of letters and symbols (sometimes numbers) that defines a search pattern.
Turbonomic supports Regular Expressions to define groups and filter Search results.
Remaining GC Capacity
Remaining GC Capacity is the percentage of CPU time not spent on garbage collection (GC).
Turbonomic uses this metric in conjunction with Heap Utilization when making scaling decisions for Application Component entities.
