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...

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...

For HA workloads (consistent resize), allow Match Cores

Today Turbonomic matches utilization based on MHz. There are use cases for when teams would want to have all their vms have matching core counts. Please add functionality to match by core count for Consistent Resize capability.

Allow automatic WPA-enablement (based on some default policy settings) for newly discovered clusters/vms

As a sequel to https://automation-management.ideas.ibm.com/ideas/TURBO-I-321, it would provide great benefit to customers to have automatic (default) WPA settings for newly discovered clusters/VMs.

allow using groups based on virtual machines as a scope for volume policies

at the moment, volume policies are only configurable by resource group. we want machines that in lots of different resource groups to be in scope for a policy

When the rate of resize is NOT 3 – show the desired end state. – let it be clear that it will take more steps to get to desired state.

If a customer has a Rate of Resize set to 2-Medium then Turbonomic will create an action to take it 25% of the way to the optimal value. And this jump (let’s say 32GB –> 34 GB memory) appears in the Action and Details. The optimal value is 8GB ...

Single execution plan for executing same action on systems located at different timezones, like Cloud Availability zones or regions

If I have a distributed application deployed at different timezones, I need to create many policies to execute an action at 6 AM on Saturday. This leads to a large number of execution plans and associated policies. If the action is same and need t...
