Question

CVM DRS Alarm


Badge +3
We have just deployed nutanix on dell XC 650 with ESXI 6.5 as hypervisor. The CVM are continuously showing red alarm for memory usage. I remember Seeing a DRS advance setting to disable the alarm for the CVM but just cannot find it.

Appreciate if some body can help me with the advance DRS setting to disable Momeory Alarm on CVM.

Hi Andrew,

This is still an issue or us. On other side, i was speaking to ur professional services people in san diego CA and was told this is due to a bug in vmware. Only way out is to disable the memory alarm in v center. I am reluctant to do thst since that will be applicable to whole v center which means we will miss on real vm alarms. Below is the KB

Between i am facing this with, most probably the biggest customer nutanix have acquired recently with some 200+ XC630. Think disclosing name publicly would n9t be appropriate for me.

Sushil

Hi @sushilkm

You should be able to try the following, this is from support KB 4465 on our support portal

This is a known issue in ESXi 6.5

To resolve this issue, disable the Virtual machine memory usage alarm to avoid false positives.

  • To disable the alarm definition:
  • Select the vCenter server object in the navigation pane of the vSphere Web Client.
  • Click Monitor > Issues.
  • Click Alarm Definitions and search for Virtual machine memory usage.
  • Select the alarm and click Edit, and then clear the Enable this alarm option.
  • Click Finish.
Let me know if this helps - Thanks

Ok, but this will disable the Alarm on all the VM in the Virtual Center...
