Nerdio Advisor: Rules

Nerdio Advisor: Rules

Nerdio Manager provides a feature that analyzes your resources based on rules you create and generates recommendations. For example, Nerdio Manager can analyze a personal host pool, and based on host pool usage data, provide recommendations for properly sizing the personal host pool. In addition, you may apply the recommendation to the associated host pools. Different analyzers can be used for different assessment criteria.

Note: For additional information about the analyzer, please see: 

Create a New Rule

Nerdio Manager allows you to create rules to be used for recommendations. Rules define how an analyzer should assess resource usage, and what triggers should be used to initiate a recommendation.

Note: It can take up to 72 hours for a virtual machine to be assessed. It is recommended that 1-4 weeks of assessment data should be gathered before accepting the changes to ensure that the recommendation takes account of all working practices.

To create a new rule:

  1. Navigate to AdvisorRules.

  2. Select Add rule.

  3. Enter the following information:

    • Toggle the rule On or Off as desired.

    • Name: Type the rule name.

    • Description: Type the rule's description.

    • Host Pools: From the drop-down list, select the host pool(s) to apply the rule to.

    • Analyzers: From the drop-down list, select the analyzers to include in this rule.

    • Settings: Fill in the settings that are specific to the selected analyzers.

    • Active Sessions Only: Select this option to include data from active sessions only.

      Note: Unselect this option if you wish to base recommendations on global VM resource usage, both with and without active sessions.

  4. Once you have entered the desired information, select OK.
