Configure Monitoring Session

GigaVUE-FM collects inventory data on all V series nodes deployed in your environment through vCenter connections. You can design your monitoring session to include or exclude the target VMs that you want to monitor. You can also choose to monitor egress, ingress, or all traffic. When a new target VM is added to your environment, GigaVUE-FM automatically detects it and based on the selection criteria, the detected target VMs are added into your monitoring session. Similarly, when a traffic monitoring target VM is removed, it updates the monitoring sessions to show the removed instance. Before deploying a monitoring session, you need to deploy a V Series node in each host where you want to monitor the traffics.

Note:  Pre-filtering is not supported on VMware ESXi running with V Series nodes.
