Make action execution limits a per-target configuration via UI

Today, we can limit concurrent actions as one line in the yaml. This setting applies to all targets and is only adjustable via command line. This idea is to allow for us to modify this setting on a per-target level and through the UI. Additionally...

VDI - GPU support/improvement

Improve on-prem placement and sizing analysis with additional GPU constraints: - Adding GPU related metrics - Placement actions to take GPU utilization & constraints into consideration - Scaling actions to update GPU profile (GPU size)

The VMware Target should have the check box just like the Dynatrace Target (Collect Tag Information)

Right now if the same tag comes in from VMware and the APM target you're going to get duplication. Let the customer decide if they want the duplication. I recommend that the default value is YES. The other option is to have smart logic choosing wh...

Include VIO Servers in the PowerVM support

I think it is important to support VIO Servers in the PowerVM support. At least add an option to allow the user to include VIO Servers. We used to have data/recommendations for VIOS when we were using Densify, so we knew we need to right-sized the...

Allow for scaling actions that do not block move actions

As a user I would like the ability to configure Turbonomic to ignore scaling actions when consumers shop for providers in the Market, so that I can enable WPA/Move automation before I enable automated scaling actions and not impact any move actions.

When we scope to a group of VMs, we need a view/report to show all the VM Names, and the Name of the Host they are running on.

When we scope to a group of VMs, we need a view/report to show all the VM Names, and the Name of the Host which each VM is running on. One way to do this is to add the host name column on the "List of Virtual Machines" tab view. It would be nice i...

CPU Socket adjustment.

client: " I’d like to have Turbo always set the number of CPU sockets to 2, and to adjust the cores per socket # to modify the # of vCPUs when RightSizing. Currently this is accomplished with a custom script. I would like this configurable on at t...

VMware Horizon Instant Clone Enhancement

IU health has 18k Horizon Users spread across 14 desktop pools at peak and typically see 10-11k users in steadystate. The environment is designed to have large pools with little segmentation to unlock as much capacity as needed. The global entitle...

To be able to change Scaling Target VMEM Utilization for On-Premises

Currently, almost all of my SQL Servers are considered to not have enough memory according to Turbonomic as it appears to want 70% free memory. This was told to me by support. This threshold is way above what VMware and Microsoft consider to be be...

Ability to set utilization and other constraints on group or cluster level

IBM Turbonomic is currently importing admission control settings which are part on a VMware HA policy as utilization constraint affecting all host in a cluster individually. For a stretched cluster this means that a 50% maximum utilization constra...
