Release: SolarWinds VM Console 1.0

Last week the network monitoring and management company SolarWinds announced its second free tool for VMware administrators: VM Console.

The first one, VM Monitor, monitors ESX hosts health, providing statistics about the virtual machines state (vCPUs, vRAM, vNICs) and best practices thresholds to recognize performance degradation.

This new product instead allows administrators to view, search for, take a snapshot, shutdown and restart the VMs without any interaction with vCenter.

SolarWinds published a video to demonstrate the product in action:
