We've received a request to implement some VMWare ESX monitors for a client. We're able to connect to the URL and obtain all the counters.
We're however not able to obtain something around the datastore, specifically for the datastore usage/ percent free/ percent in use, which as fate would have it is what the client's interested in seeing.
We thought we could acquire this data with a script monitor instead, using SSH and just running a script that would pull this data for Sitescope. The catch: SSH is not enabled for the client's VCenter, and it doesn't sound like they're keen to enable it.
So, is there a way to get a counter for datastore usage (percent free/ percent in use)? Ideally I'm hoping we could tweak a template, but essentially we need to do this without resorting to a script-based solution.
I have to add that if the only way that this is possible is to go with a script-based solution, then so be it.
it better to post produc version and OS where it is installed ... You may want to consider using "VMware Host solution template; check <SiteScope directory>\sisdocs\pdfs\SiteScope_VMware_Host_Best_Practices.pdf
