Fabric

A Fabric is a service that unites compute, network and storage access into a cohesive system. When you connect Turbonomic to fabric targets, it monitors the performance and resource consumption of the fabric entities to assure application performance while also utilizing resources as efficiently as possible.

Once connected, Turbonomic discovers the blades that host the VMs, the chassis and datastores that provide resources to the blades, the IO modules and fabric interconnects that provide network resources, and the virtual datastores that provide storage resources to the VMs.

As part of this process, Turbonomic stitches information from the fabric target and the associated hypervisor targets together to support Application Resource Management (ARM).  With this support, it provides deeper insight into the state of the hardware, the applications, and the VM’s running on the hypervisor-stitched blades. Combined with other targets, this information supports a top-down, application-driven approach to managing your environment.


Flow0 -- InProvider Flow

Flow0 -- InProvider Flow is a measurement of network flow within a single provider, e.g.,, the network flow between VMs that are hosted by the same physical machine. This measures network flow between consumers that are on the same set of closely connected providers. Charts show the percentage of capacity that is utilized. 

Note that Turbonomic assumes an unlimited supply of InProvider Flow because this flow does not go across the physical network

Flow1 -- InDPOD Flow

Flow1-- InDPOD Flow is a measurement of network flow that is local to the given DPOD. This measures network flow between consumers that are on the same set of closely connected providers. Charts show the percentage of capacity that is utilized.

Flow2-- CrossDPOD Flow

Flow2 -- CrossDPOD Flow is a measurement of network flow that is between different DPODs. This measures network flow between consumers that are on different sets of closely connected providers. Charts show the percentage of capacity that is utilized.
