Similar to VMWare DRS, I would like onapp to monitor host load both in terms of CPU and RAM, but more CPU then anything, and determine which VMs it should hot migrate from the current overloaded host to another host that has more free resources. This allows VMs to spike via the CPU Priority feature or even as more VMs get adjusted (CPU/RAM up and down) they can be moved as needed, as currently it only occurs when a VM is built. It needs to be monitoring this all the time and make adjustments automatically like VMware DRS does. Also like DRS have different levels of host load level (like VMware 1-5) and have it manual (only recommendations dont move automatically), semi-automatic (move VMs automatically only during power on) and fully automatic (monitor and move without intervention all the time) modes as well. Also maybe at some point monitor datastore IOPs, space and latency and be able to do storage migrations automatically (or recommend via an alert email) as well.
