vRealize Automation monitoring

“VMTurbo"
Since i started to work as a consultant back in 2007 monitoring has been part of pretty much all design, implementations and heath checks i have done. Every now and then i receive questions about how to implement monitoring for certain software and this week i received a question about monitoring the vRealize Automation (vRA)  formerly known as vCloud Automation Center (vCAC).
This blog post will describe how you can monitor the vRA:

  • Virtual Appliance
  • Identity Appliance,
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Manager
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Web services.

The blog post will not include e.g. the Distributed Execution Manager (DEM) Orchestrator, DEM Worker, vSphere Proxy Agent and the databases Microsoft SQL (MSSQL) and PostgreSQL the most likely also will be included in the vRA setup.

The following applies to (at least) vRA versions 6.1 and 6.2.

vRA Virtual Appliance

You can call the following URL for health status monitoring of the vRA VA(s):

  • https://fdqn/vcac/services/api/status

Make sure the response includes the following:

  • REGESTERED
    vRA01

vRA Identity Appliance

You can call the following URL for health status monitoring of the vRA Identity Appliance(s):

  • https://fdqn:7444/websso/HealthStatus

Make sure the response includes the following:

  • GREEN

    vra02

vRA IaaS Manager

You can call the following URL for health status monitoring of the vRA IaaS Manager(s)

  • https://fqdn/VMPS2

Make sure the response includes the following:

  • BasicHttpBinding_VMPSProxyAgent_policy
    vra03

vRA IaaS Web

You can call the following URL for health status monitoring of the vRA IaaS Manager(s)

  • https://fqdn/WAPI/api/status

Make sure the response includes the following:

  •  iaas-service
    vra04

 

Hope this will help you in setting up monitoring for your vRA components.

    Hi Magnus,

    Nice post. These health status URLs are not wel documented.

    You can also use the following URL to monitor the registered services on the vRA : https://fqdn/component-registry/services/status/current

    We’re having a bear of a time getting monitoring set up for OS level stuff like cpu/memory/partition space; basic Linux stuff. Is there a recommended way to do that?

    I’m interested in this as well. Any news on how we can accomplish this?

    Thanks!

    form within vRA or call third party system via vRO/vCO?

    thanks.

    From within vRA. NRPE or JMX Remote, something along those lines.

    I’ve tried with JMX Remote but we require a login and when setting the flag to require authentication, we lose registration of services in the vRA VAMI.
