When will the CABI VMware Host reports be fixed?

  • 1.  When will the CABI VMware Host reports be fixed?

    Posted 13 days ago
    So one set of the Unified Reports that we have scheduled that go out to clients on a monthly basis are the VMware Hosts * reports. The ones we use are the VMware Hosts by CPU Usage, by Memory Usage, by VM Count.
    VM Host Memory Usage:

    VMCount:

    These all work in Unified Reports. 

    In CABI still in 9.20 these are all broken:
    VMCount:

    Same result above for the VM Host Memory and CPU Usage.

    When will these be fixed? I'm trying this with the latest 9.20 and cabi 4.10. Is there a new vmware updated working fix for this somewhere?

    Thank you.

    Have you applied the latest cabi dashboards?
    Please see the below KB:

    if you deployed the 1.1.1 version of the dashboards you might want to stop the wasp probe on the cabi and rename the work folder as well
    and then test again.

    cabi has uim_vmware_dashboards_pack version which does not include a Count report. 
    what you are showing doesn't even match the Unified Dashboards > Cloud and Virtualization > VMware Hosts dashboard which has a VMware Host VM Count
    so fill in the details of this report, what is it really and how is it accessed or it is custom built

    Hi Dave, Gene,
    What I am looking for is the working replacement "VMware Hosts by *" reports that are in the Unified Report that work. 
    These same reports are in the CABI library but don't work.

    Yes deploying this "uim_cabi_vmware_dashboards 1.11", onto the CABI and UMP box  did populate the Unified Dashboards VMware summary page:


    But the "VMware Hosts by *" reports in the CABI Library still don't work. These are the ones that we need to schedule in CABI and send out but there is no replacement for them in CABI. These are in the CABI Library and I need these to work but don't:

    @David Michel those are List Views under Unified Dashboards > Cloud and Virtualization > VMware Hosts 
    You cannot schedule and email List Views.
    Basically before upgrading to 9.20 and possibly losing Unified Reports, we need to make sure that the CABI replacement for the Unified Reports for VMware reports that we are currently sending out to clients, work. 

    Unified Reports has:


    CABI has them too but don't work:

    Just FYI, these are the same reports presented under the Operator Console for > Reports > VMWare that don't work:


    These all give the same error message:
    The report is empty.

    OK, now I'm with you, but unfortunately don't have any live vmware data to test with. 

    Easy to see from the url this is a cabi report and since it is built in the back end config such as data source, etc. should all be automatically set. 
    /cabijs/flow.html?_flowId=viewReportFlow&decorate=no&standAlone=true&ParentFolderUri=vmware_hosts_by_vm_count&reportUnit=%2Fpublic%2Fca%2Fuim%2Freports%2Flibrary%2Fvirtualization%2Fvmware%2Fvmware_hosts_by_vm_count

    Maybe someone else out there has vmware and can test this. 
    However either way it will probably be necessary for you to open a case.

    I quick way to check if I'm just missing the data for the report is if you have a way to open the report its trying to run and tell me what QoS its looking for.
    IDK where these are stored and how to view them to see the actual queries its trying to run against the db.

    checking the library xml provided no clue so went for the obvious based on the name vmware_hosts_by_vm_count and found this at the probe metrics page under the Host section.

    VMCount Count This monitor indicates the number of virtual machines on this host.

    Ok I definitely have that data from the probe. That metric is turned on and PRD has data.

    Hello, I'm raising the sev on my case b/c we really want to upgrade on the 24th but need a working report.
    But in the mean time just thinking of workarounds. 

    Could I install a 2nd UMP instance (UMP2) and point it to our current 8.51 UIM deployment and install Unified Reports on this UMP2 box. Would the 2nd UMP\UR instance see the same scheduled reports in the existing database?

    Then when I upgrade to 9.20, if I don't upgrade this 2nd UMP box instance, or just upgrade it and leave it at 9.02, could I still run the existing UR off this box and have the working reports? 

    [Primary Hub ] [UMP] fully upgraded to 9.20

    ^[UMP2 with Unified Reports running and staying at 9.02 ]

    Would this possibly work ?


    Also I need a clarification, when we upgrade from 8.51 to 9.02 that is when I install the 9.02 Unified Reports correct. Then do we loose Unified Reports portlet when I upgrade to 9.20 or will I have still have it if I installed UR 9.02? I'm not clear on that.

    Thanks.
