  • 1.  Alarm Condition for Dropped Pings?

    Posted Jan 31, 2018 02:38 PM

    We currently use HPSIM as a tool to monitor dropped pings. I'm trying to minimize mgmt interfaces and wanted to find out if anyone has had any luck in configuring an alarm condition for dropped pings in vSphere?

    Well, vSphere doesn't natively ping anything, so there's no condition to attach to in vCenter. What you're looking for is a metric-driven alarm and not a condition-driven alarm, and this is something for the likes of vROps.
