Using Workload Balancing Reports for Tasks


XenCenter YYYY.x.x is not yet supported for use with Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 in production environments. 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 YYYY.x.x on the same system. Installing XenCenter YYYY.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.
