Checking Reboot of VMs


Posted (edited)

Has anyone had any luck monitoring VMStatus for reboots without using the DaysSinceLastReboot? as this gives a false reading, as it kicks in when the VM is vMotioned.

I have tried the GuestState but it looks like the GuestOS isnt in the state for long enough for that to trigger

Assume you're not monitoring the VMs themselves but only monitoring vCenter/ESX? If you monitor the VM directly you get much more depth of monitoring, including an out of the box alarm that opens when sysUptime is less than 60 minutes. Yes, it costs you a license, but for most the value of the additional depth of data is worth the cost of the additional license.
