Please provide an option to override the thresholds set in vmware probe at the template level for individual nodes
Use Case Example:
We have VMFS in datastore of different capacities being monitored for "% Capacity free". In the template, we have set a standard threshold of less than 5% which is applied to all VMFS as a standard.
However there are certain VMFS which needs different threshold levels set for monitoring like less than 3% or 4% as this would be appropriate based on the size of the VMFS. Right now, the only way to do it is to remove the monitor from the template and set the thresholds manually for all the nodes
This might sound easy if the number of nodes are less, in a scenario where we have dozens of VMFS monitored by vmware probe and I need to override the threshold of around 5 to 6 VMFS only option for me is to remove the monitor from template completely and manually configuring the thresholds for all of them. This would be a very tedious task in a large scale environment.
It would take good amount of time doing the manual configuration for all of the nodes and monitors if it’s a large scale environment
Also it’s just not about one particular monitor, there are many other monitors in the vmware probe where one set of thresholds may not be right for all the nodes and there should be an option to override it at the node level if needed instead of configuring manually for all of them
