We started this chapter with a look at three interesting tools that NSX offers to allow us to efficiently and thoroughly monitor and analyze our environment. Activity Monitoring is a tool that has been replaced by Endpoint Monitor, which allows us visibility into applications. You will also need to enable guest introspection in VMware tools as well. We then looked at flow monitoring. We ended the chapter by looking at the traceflow tool to identify network issues and allow us end-to-end packet trace visibility.
In Chapter 8, Managing NSX, we will look at the operational management of our NSX environment. We will look at backing up NSX Manager, setting up syslog servers, controller cluster actions, and many more.
