This page summarizes the 2020 version of my vSphere Performance monitoring series. Originally I did this series in 2017 and you can find those posts here
The original series was based on Powershell scripts pulling vSphere metrics to an InfluxDB timeseries database and visualizing the metrics with Grafana. The 2020 series still uses Grafana and InfluxDB, but the metrics are now pulled with the Telegraf agent from InfluxData.
The list of posts in this series will be added as they are published, most of them are quite lengthy and they build on eachother. Still you should be able to jump in anywhere and get some valid pointers.
This is an overview of the different dashboards used and created in this series.
To see how you can import these dashboards check this post
- vSphere - Overview (Grafana.com ID - 12786)
- vSphere - Host details (Grafana.com ID - 12852)
- vSphere - VM details (Grafana.com ID - 12874)
As always there are other great minds that have created dashboards, check out these for more inspiration
