Viewing vCMP guest statistics with the BIG-IP Configuration utility

Using the BIG-IP® Configuration utility, you can list the names of, and information about, the vCMP guests that are currently on the system.
  1. Log out of the guest.
  2. On an external system, open a browser window and access the vCMP host, using the vCMP host's management IP address.
  3. Using your user credentials, log in to the BIG-IP Configuration utility.
  4. On the Main tab, click vCMP.
The system displays a list of vCMP guest names, as well as this information:
  • The state configured for the guest
  • The slot numbers on which the guest is running or slated to run
  • The guest's management IP address and netmask

Viewing vCMP guest statistics with tmsh

Using the tmsh command line interface, you can view various types of statistics with respect to the vCMP system. You can view both guest statistics and virtual disk statistics.

On the BIG-IP® system, from a command line prompt, type show vcmp.
The system output shows sample statistics for a guest running on one or more slots.

Viewing disk usage statistics

Using the BIG-IP® Configuration utility, you can view information about the vCMP disk usage:
  • Disk name
  • The slot numbers corresponding to the disk name
  • The number of virtual disks
  • The total vCMP application volume size, in gigabytes
  • The available vCMP application volume size, in gigabytes
  1. On the Main tab, click vCMP > Virtual Disk List.
  2. Locate the Disk Usage area of the screen.

The following table shows sample statistics.

Disk Slot ID Number of Virtual Disks Total Volume Size (GB) Available Volume Size (GB)
HD1 2 1 84 14

Viewing virtual disk statistics

Using the BIG-IP® Configuration utility, you can view information about the virtual disks that are currently allocated to vCMP guests:
  • The virtual disk names
  • The slot number corresponding to each virtual disk image
  • The size in gigabytes of each virtual disk
  • The name of the guest to which each virtual disk is currently allocated
  1. On the Main tab, click vCMP > Virtual Disk List.
  2. Locate the Virtual Disk List area of the screen.

The following table shows sample statistics for three separate virtual disks.

Virtual Disk Name Slot ID Operating System Status Disk use
GuestA.img 1 TMOS Ready 64.4G
GuestB.img 1 Unknown Unknown 64.4G
GuestC.img 1 TMOS Ready 64.4G
