Turbonomic - GitOps Integration using Webhooks workflows

Several customers request GitOps integration with Turbonomic, however native integration (ArgoCD + Github/Gitlab) does not fully meet this demand. My suggestion is to create a new integration option, where kubeturbo just collects information fr...

Allow resizing of a VM when the VM is not running

Scale actions to resize or change the instance type of a VM in Azure do not function on a VM that is stopped/deallocated. Many of our VMs are scheduled to be stopped outside of normal business hours. We also have a schedule policy to have "execute...

Implement capacity adjustability for active-active consistent resize groups

If we have a group of 2 active-active vms that are running at 80% capacity and one fails over all traffic to the other, we would exceed utilization capacity. We need to be able to configure this capacity limit for scaling purposes in these scenari...

Resize Recommendation is below default policy settings

Turbonomic console recommendation gives adjustments below default settings causing our estimates to be wrong pre and post activities. The total at the top of Pending Actions dialogue shows all recommendations even below minimums. We need to be abl...

Add an "at least" option to go up to maximum when scaling up and down to minimum when scaling down

Today, Turbonomic calculates the desired sizing of a VM and then generates an action to go there. Currently if there's a minimum set in a policy, Turbonomic could just discard the action if the Desired State is below the minimum and then not resiz...

Stop Azure Application Gateway via a schedule/policy to reduce costs when back-end pools are off line or shutdown.

Azure Application Gateways cannot be stopped/started via the Azure Web Portal, but they can be stopped or started using Azure CLI or Powershell. There is also a POST command API method to start/stop an Application Gateway that can be found in the ...

When an action execution is blocked by relative actions, user should be able to see the list of all those relative actions (possibly as a dependency chain)

When the action execution is blocked by relative actions, i.e with status "Action execution is blocked by related actions on this entity or destination entity." , as a user I don't have an easy way to find out which other actions are causing the b...

Allow ability to not actually suspend hosts, but put them in a state where no VMs will be placed on them

The way that our infrastructure is set up does not respond kindly to host suspend/power off actions, but we want to be able to densify our current environment. We'd like the ability to enable "suspend host" such that we can operate efficiently on ...
