I had the pleasure of giving a talk about how to do monitoring of the vCenter Server during the VMUG Oslo meeting in December. The session was an extension of what I presented during the VMUG meetings in May and the vBrownbag session during VMworld Europe.

The demos showed how we can get health status and metrics from a vCenter Server Appliance utilizing the new REST APIs shipped in 6.5 and 6.7. During the session I built out a Grafana dashboard with version and uptime information about the vCenter, the health status, vCenter service status, disk utilization and CPU/Memory utilization.

Detailed information about how I’ve built out these dashboards can be found here.
