Understanding vScope

The vScope interface allows you to monitor your infrastructure

Last updated 28th January 2022


OVHcloud puts an infrastructure supervision and monitoring tool called vScope at your disposal.

It's a web based utility gathering and presenting all the useful information on your resources.

This guide describes the functionalities of the vScope interface.



To access the vScope interface, click the vScope icon in the login window of your Hosted Private Cloud.

A vScope access link is also available in your OVHcloud Control Panel.

In both cases, you'll be directed to a new browser tab with this URL.


Use your vSphere username and password to log on the interface.


You are now connected to vScope and can monitor your resources. For example, you can see in the main window the number of Cores and VMs on each host as well as CPU and RAM consumption or network traffic.


In case of multiple datacenters inside a single Hosted Private Cloud, you can select them in the scrolling menu. Last refresh is the last web page refresh, not the vScope one. vScope refreshes every 2 to 5 minutes.


The Filer menu gives an insight on datastore usage in terms of VMs and storage space.


Clicking on the Graphs icon, you can see more details on the chosen resource.


The Hosts menu offers all the characteristics for each host in your datacenter (Cores, vCPUs, VM) and the usage percentage as well as network connectivity on all physical network cards (VMNic).


The detailed view also shows historical data over a day, week, month or year as needed.


The last section details each VM's usage with the following data :

  • VMtools state
  • Network traffic
  • VM size
  • FT (Fault Tolerance) activation state
  • CPU Ready Time
  • Disk IO
  • Disk Latency
