Abstract

In today's resource-intensive virtualized environments, efficient management of resources is crucial to ensureoptimal performance and prevent resource bottlenecks. When the resources are scaled, managing and monitoring them becomes difficult therefore, there comes a need of automating managing, monitoring, and alerting and taking precautionary measures in order to save the hardware from degrading or damaging. There are instances when the hardware is under-utilized or over-utilized, in both scenarios the hardware is not being optimally used. This paper presents a comprehensive approach to monitor VMware resources using the Go programming language and GOVCtool. We utilized VMware ESXi servers as the virtualization platform and vCenter to create a centralized datacenter. Wepresent the architecture, implementation details including all attempts to emulate a datacenter, and results of our system,to successfully automate snapshot deletion. Our solution serves as a valuable tool for administrators and organizations seeking to streamline resource management in VMware ESXi-based datacenters.
