Effective VMware vSphere auditing can be challenging using the built-in tools which lack many important features needed to satisfy policy and regulatory requirements. In order to fully understand and document VMware setting changes, manual collection of log details need to be compiled, analyzed and organized into actionable reports. Without these elements, audit information needed to remediate problems is not available.
In the event of a disaster, the lack of quality audit information can leave the administrator with very little information to remediate the issue. With native tools, audit logs are not formatted to be user-friendly and troubleshooting requires a high level of skill and experience. Only then, and presuming the data collection was complete and the analysis correct, can it be used to make actionable decisions.
The generation of management reports or archiving for compliance and change-management purposes is also necessary and is not natively provided. Netwrix VMware ESX monitoring software solves this issue by tracking, reporting and securely archiving the changes made to VMware settings.
The product gives administrators the ability to automatically track all VMware changes via email and web-based reports with "who, what, when and where" information regarding each change, as well as the "before" and "after" values for every modification without having to access multiple resources, scour logs or manually compose reports.
Netwrix Auditor for VMware provides complete visibility on every change made to your VMware infrastructure. For example, when memory allocation settings are changed, the report shows before and after values, or, when physical hardware on the host system is replaced, the report displays both the old and new devices. Anything less than this level of detail can risk data security, compliance, and overall system reliability. This powerful and important feature of Netwrix VMware ESX monitoring software quickly and easily provides the information needed to effectively manage setting changes.
