license report for VMWare templates

Hi

Is it possible to get a report from SiS that outputs all the VMs and ESXis it is counting in its licensing? and is it possible to exclude VMs from monitoring? other than using regex for every single monitor?

Re: license report for VMWare templates

Hi Micky,

Here is the answer to your questions:

Is it possible to get a report from SiS that outputs all the VMs and ESXis it is counting in its licensing?

Unfortunately the creation of custom reports is not possible in SiteScope. 

Is it possible to exclude VMs from monitoring? other than using regex for every single monitor?

Can you please give me a better explanation of this topic? (More details).

Please let me know if you have anyother question on this case.

I will be waiting for your response.

Regards,

Re: license report for VMWare templates

Hi Kevin

 

Micro Focus license this product based on OSI. With VMware templates, each ESXI/VM consumes an OSI license. How is the customer supposed to manage its environment when it can't get this information out and how would Micro Focus even audit this?

the customer wants to control the number of VMs SiteScope monitors through this template so it doesn't consume all its OSIs. Also, it seems SiS is double counting licensing, a the same VM discovered via the VMware template and a Windows host monitor consums 2 OSIs when its the same host and should only consume 1.
