Allow for successful VM Move actions when resource pool doesn't exist in destination cluster

When creating superclusters, Cluster A has a Resource Pool named ResourcePoolA and ClusterB has a Resource Pool only by the name of ResourcePoolB. Turbonomic will generate move actions from hosts in ClusterA to hosts in ClusterB, and those move ac...

Allow for CPU Increment Size in vCPU Scaling Controlsto be extrapolated from "Change" field

We, like many customers, require the ability to increment by 2 (avoid odd number of cores) regardless of scaling control type. Currently, the tool only allows for that to be adjusted if we change "Virtual CPU". We need more granularity in ways we ...

Provide a means of identifying/managing policies with no/empty scope groups

As a user I would like the ability to identify policies that no longer have a scope group associated or groups that no longer have any members, so that I can ensure my automation is being enforced correctly as well as reduce "clutter".

Manage Move Automation on a non-VM level

Turbo WPA is a competitor to VMware's DRS capabilities. Considering most customers ofTurbo are virtualized with VMware, we/they need a way to handle WPA on a cluster level, instead of having to create a group of VMs based on cluster resourcing as ...

Move enable/disable disruptive actions from Policy wide to action type

The option to enable/disable disruptive actions policy-wide is very restrictive. Most downscale actions are disruptive, but most upscale actions can be non-disruptive. In the current implementation, only a group of VM can be marked with this setti...

Automatic policy creation for instance type scale that take Availability Zones into consideration.

Sometimes, we encounter the error 'The requested configuration is currently not supported.' due to the instance scaling action. Example: t3.micro -> t3a.nano Regions where each instance type is supported: t3.micro: ap-northeast-1d, ap-northeast...

Newly created Instance Types not be added automatically added to the existing policies

We have observed that, the polices are being automatically changed such that the newly created instance types by Azure and Google cloud providers are being selected in all the existing policies. This should not be happening in the policies created...

Improve adding groups to "Volumes" and "Database" policies

Currently, when changing the scope of a policy, the new scope overrides the old scope once saved. This only occurs for database policies and volume policies, not virtual machine policies. For example, if i have a policy and the scope is for group ...

Have Turbonomic ignore DRS constraints if DRS is turned off on the cluster

I have some move policies that are failing to produce actions due to a restriction on "Segmentation Commodity" type constraint, built off of DRS rules imported from vCenter. However, even after I turned DRS off, it is still restricting the VMs eve...
