This script allow you to feed vCenter alarms into AM as well as keep a historic of them. You just have to configure your vCenter alarms to run the included vbs script with the parameters detailed in the comments of such script so your alarms are registered in an xml file of your choice. Once done, you can read those alarms using the provided KS.

This script may come in particularly handy to monitor hardware-based alarms from ESXi hosts.

Contents in this package:

  • CreateVcenterEvent.vbs is to be called from vCenter as an alarm trigger. The parameters vCenter passes to the script are detailed inside the script.

  • VirtualCenter_Alarms.qml is the AM knowledge script that processes the resulting xml file and creates the events stored in it. The processed events are marked as such to prevent the next iteration from duplicating events.

  • readme.txt contains the two previous bullets.
