    Hi all,

    What would be a suitable vCenter/vSphere monitoring tool to capture and report datastore growth rate on a daily basis?

    I need this piece of information to plan for my DR.

    you can use Veeam Monitor (free edition) - http://www.veeam.com/esxi-monitoring-free.html?ad=menu 

    Storage monitoring

    Veeam Monitor provides full storage monitoring capabilities, including disk space, disk issues and datastore monitoring. The latter allows for viewing datastore load information aggregated from disk utilization statistics of all VMs and hosts using the specific datastore. This allows you to see the actual cumulative load on a particular datastore. Datastore I/O monitoring is a unique Veeam Monitor feature not available from other VMware monitoring applications.

    Thanks for sharing. but I feel this tool suites real-time monitoring rather than historical reporting.

    What I really need is to accumulate information over some period about delta changes on a particular datastore.
