Monitoring metrics within the logical vmware folder hierachy

  • 1.  Monitoring metrics within the logical vmware folder hierachy

    Posted 05-02-2011 08:00 AM

    Hey there,

     

    I was doing a vblock demonstration this morning and while showing off the vblock probe the customer presented an interesting scenario. They use vCenter and have arranged a logical folder hierachy of datacenters, clusters, datastores, networks, virtual machines, templates, and/or hosts within them. They're an MSP, so this allows them to segment objects within vCenter from a business perspective rather than technology perspective.

     

    So they asked if there was a way to manage metrics for objects within these logical folders from within the vmware probe rather than present it a hardware perspective? Particularly if they are to be using templates or automatic configuration. I am thinking if they aren't presented in the web service from the vCenter then probably not, but would like some vmware guru to confirm first before I follow up.

     

    Thanks!

    Don't worry. Customer not serious at this stage due to commercial implications (they don't thinkt hey can afford us at the moment!)
