5.1. Viewing Summary Information

The Summary tab of the Infrastructure section provides you with general information of all the physical servers and virtual environments. It allows you to quickly and timely assess the current situation and, if necessary, take the required actions. The tab is available by clicking the Infrastructure submenu in the navigation tree.

The Overall Status section shows the virtual environments that have signaled resources consumption alerts or those physical servers whose licenses have expired or are going to expire.

Note

You can configure Virtuozzo Automator to not show alerts for specific mount points on your system even if disk usage on them is close to or exceeds the set limit. For detailed information on how you can do this, see Base Types and Interfaces > System Interface and Special Packets > system > Calls > configuration in the VA Agent XML API Reference guide.
