Environment / Functionality Matrix

Data Center Environment

Solution Functionality

Any virtualized data center with heterogeneous network equipment capable of sending Flows

By processing flows from network devices, you will get in real time:

  • Health score and Failure risk of network physical interfaces

  • Path between communicating end points (VM to VM or VM to Host)

VMware Virtual Distributed Switch (VDS)

All functionality is available. By enabling IPFIX on VDS, and flows on other network devices, V2P Network Visibility will correlate virtual and physical traffic, resolving VM-to-VMhost adjacency, and ToR (Top of the Rack) switches

VMware Virtual Standard Switch (VSS)

V2P Network Visibility solution will function with VSS. By processing flows from network devices, V2P Network Visibility will report Health score and Failure risk of network devices and interfaces. Path between communicating peers (VMs and/or physical hosts) is reported, but VM-to-Vmhost adjacency is not resolved

VMWare NSX

V2P Network Visibility relies on VDS for correlating virtual and physical network traffic. Other components, including VMware NSX virtualization platform itself, are optional
