As a vCMP® host administrator, you can log into the vCMP host and view status information about each guest. Using the BIG-IP® Configuration utility or the Traffic Management Shell (tmsh), you can view this information in two forms:
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:
List of guests with summary information
From the vCMP® host, you perform this task to view information about the software installed on a specific vCMP guest on the system.
Guest installation information
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).
Resource provisioning information for a guest
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.
