    Why does Hyperic require these permissions. it seems a bit much from a monitoring perspective?

    Required Privileges

    The vCenter user account that the Hyperic Agent uses to connect to vCenter must have a vCenter role with the following privileges: 

    •   Virtual machine > Interaction > Power Off, Power On, Reset, and Suspend
    •   Virtual machine > State > Create Snapshot, Remove Snapshot, Rename Snapshot, and Revert Snapshot
