I’ve been using check_esxi_hardware.py for a few VMWare environments.
But this is not enough for me, I want to have more details, so I tried to use other plugins.
But all of the Plugins erquire a running VMWare Perl SDK.
So I tried installing it on a new blank CentOS 7 Server.
But I failed for many different reasons and came across this thread: The Pain and Fury of vmware-cli on CentOS 7
So my question is: What do you use for VMWare Monitoring? Which Plugins? Using Perl SDK?
I also came accross the VMWare Automation REST API which seems a good Idea, but also there is not all information I want.
I’m searching for details about:
- Service State (like hostd etc.)
- VMWare Alarms
- Datastore Usage
- CPU Load (Host)
- RAM Usage (Host)
- Network Bandwidth (Host)
Thanks for any input on this.
