VMWare Solution Templates Deployment Guides?

Hi all

I have used SiS lightly for various monitoring uses but one of our customers wants to use it to monitor their virtual environment and i've not had much experiance with it. I have started playing with it but it seems very dissapointing in compared with other virtulisation monitoring tools. What I'm expecting, is that i give SiS a vCentre hostname, and SiS goes off and discovers the environment and automatically applies predefined monitoring settings and displays metrics and current status in the dashboard. From what i've gathered so far, i need to supply individual host, datastore and worse, individual VM details i want monitored and all i get is a colour on the top level object host/datastore without seeing easily what the problem is. If looked at all the available guides but i can't really find anything that seems to suggest the above is possible.

This is supposed to be integrated with OMi but there are no OOTB ETI/HI event mappings. Everything seems like it should be harder than what it should be.

Am i missing something?

Hello Mick

Yes, for VM monitoring you'll need to provide most of that information. Other options may include using individual monitors instead of the one from the solution templates.

VMware Datastore Monitor


VMware Host Monitor


VMware Performance Monitor


Or if more specific counters are needed, using a script monitor (this will require you some knowledge in scripting).
