I was just wondering if anyone has created any fancy dashboards for VMWare?
I have created some basic tiles which include:
- vCenter, Hosts and Datastores status
- Graphs showing top 5 used data stores. hosts with high memory usage, top VMs with high cpu
The last thing I want to put on my dashboard is to show information in relation to snapshots, E.g. count of snapshots, list servers with snapshots that are older than 7 days.
If anyone know of a way to configure this it would be highly appreciated.
If you have any other ideas of things to include on a VMWare dashboard it would be helpful too.
Thanks for your help!
I have included snapshot size and age via the scopes:
Group: VMware Virtual Machine Group
Class: VMware Virtual Machine
VMGuest – snapshotsSizeMB
VMGuest – snapshotAgeHours
You can also use overrides on the veeam managementpack that looks for snapshots so you get an alert when the snapshot is over 7 days. And then filter and show alerts from that monitor.
As for count of snapshots I have no good idea for that. I guess you have to build your own monitor for that.
