Embotics® vCommander® automatically evaluates how well provisioned resources for each VM match actual usage patterns, and makes rightsizing recommendations on how you can optimize your provisioning. The system will suggest that you decrease resources when the usage shows they were not needed, or add resources if the system was consistently consuming over the expected amount.

Additionally, the recommendations will also display the cost savings or increases based on the cost model applied to the VM at the time the recommendation was generated. Once a recommendation has been issued in the system, it will not be updated until new performance data has been received.

This means updates to a cost model won’t be instantly reflected to the costs shown for the recommendations, as the calculation will not take place again until the system has the new performance data.
