VMware VSAN

Recommended Posts

We have some vSAN LogicModules in the pipeline but we've been waiting to complete and release them until we after we release our update for the base VMware modules. There isn't currently a plan to pull the vCenter-defined alerts through directly. We'd prefer to pull the metrics out and define the alarms within LogicMonitor to avoid noise and allow configuration within the product.

That being said, if there's enough interest in just pulling VMware's alarms through we can look at that too.

Hi Mike, 

There are a number of alarms only visible/shown by the vCenter above & beyond the Alarms seen at the ESX host level. The ability to alert on these is greatly needed, however filtering of these alarms at one level or another to cut the noise is also vital, especially when dealing with multiple vCenter's.

vSAN monitoring yes please, we are seeing more and more of this.

Also VCSA - (vCenter appliance), with VMware 6/6.5 onwards we will only get these Linux based virtual appliances, we already have a significant number deployed, whilst the vCenter datasources are good for the 'vCenter' application there is a big hole in the monitoring capability for the underlying disk space & VM services - we can configure SNMP on these appliances and then use the Linux ds to see the disk space there is nothing for the services out of the box - we have also seen some potential performance/stress related issues with running SNMP on some of these appliances, so preferably any new DS should be using the New VCSA 6.5 API to look at and pull the various stats/status information.

Thanks

Nick
