Veeam Software announces Veaam Monitor, VMware monitoring solution
Veeam Software announced the release of Veeam Monitor, an application to monitor VMware virtual machines’ performance and resource usage.

Veeam Monitor provides a view of the performance and resource usage of all Virtual Machines running on a VMware Server or VMware Workstation. Running Veeam Monitor is similar to running multiple Windows Task Managers on each virtual machine and combining the result into a single monitoring console. In addition, the program provides a view of the specific usage of the subsystems such as the CPU, memory, hard disk, network and pagefile.

Veeam Monitor is available in three licence forms: Veeam Monitor for VMware Server, Veeam Monitor for VMware Workstation and Veeam Monitor for VMware Workstation Personal Edition, which are available for US$200, US$30 and free of charge respectively.
