vCMP administrators can view guest summary information while logged into the vCMP host. The vCMP system displays this information on a single screen of the BIG-IP Configuration utility for all guests on the vCMP system. The summary information consists of:
From the vCMP host, you perform this task to view information about the software installed on a specific vCMP guest on the system.
From the vCMP host, you perform this task to view detailed information about current core, memory, and disk allocation for a guest. You can also view a list of the BIG-IP modules that a vCMP guest administrator has provisioned and the level of provisioning for each module (Dedicated, Nominal, or Minimal).
From the vCMP host, you perform this task to view any high availability (HA) failures pertaining to services running on the guest. For example, you can view whether the cluster-time-sync feature within the CLUSTERED service has failed. You can also view the specific action that the BIG-IP system took when the failure occurred, such as rebooting the system on the relevant slot.
