Solution Verified - Updated -


  • How can the RHEV agent be installed on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux guest?
  • Why doesn't the resolution of my RHEL guest auto-detect when I launch the Spice console?
  • I need to install the RHEV agent for RHEL 6 guests
  • Currently the IP address field is not being populated for any VMs.
  • How do I monitor VMs memory usage in the "Virtual Machines" tab?
  • VM memory stats not showing in report
  • No memory stats for running VMs displayed in RHEV-M
  • Memory/CPU utilization shown on RHEV web portal (not reporting one) does not match actual utilization within OS. It defers a lot.
