VMware Host Network Interface Status

Recommended Posts

I'd like to request that the ability to monitor if a vmnic on an ESXi host is up or down, while excluding NIC's that are always down. IE If vmnic4 was up and serving traffic, and then all of a sudden someone unplugged the cable, I want to be able to get an alarm on this. Also, the metric thresholds for Rx & Tx will not work, because sometimes traffic drops to 0 and the link is in a valid state.

This is not exactly what you want, but it works (we also had unhappy surprises on this).  You just have to disable alerting on vmnics expected to be down.  And, you will have to wait for LM code review.
