Using Workload Balancing Reports for Tasks


XenCenter 2023.x.x is currently in preview and is not supported for production use. Note that any future references to production support apply only when XenCenter 2023.x.x and XenServer 8 go from preview status to general availability.

You can use XenCenter 2023.x.x to manage your XenServer 8 and Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 non-production environments. However, to manage your Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 production environment, use XenCenter 8.2.7. For more information, see the XenCenter 8.2.7 documentation.

You can install XenCenter 8.2.7 and XenCenter 2023.x.x on the same system. Installing XenCenter 2023.x.x does not overwrite your XenCenter 8.2.7 installation.

The Workload Balancing reports can help you perform capacity planning, determine virtual-machine health, and evaluate the effectiveness of your configured threshold levels.

Evaluating the effectiveness of your performance thresholds

You can use the Pool Health report to evaluate the effectiveness of your optimization thresholds. Workload Balancing provides default threshold settings. However, you might need to adjust these defaults for them to provide value in your environment. If you do not have the thresholds adjusted to the correct level for your environment, the Workload Balancing recommendations might not be appropriate for your environment.

Troubleshooting administrative changes

You can use the Pool Audit Trail report to determine the source (that is, user account) of problematic changes and the event or task that user performed.
