Hi - Can anyone provide instructions as to how to properly monitor ESXi 5 in version 9.2?
I have the new VMWare Host Server (SOAP) sensor querying my VCenter host, and that seems to work fine to display CPU, Memory, and a few other pieces of information.
What I'm not clear on is how to query host hardware and disk space usage with ESXi.
The Host Hardware (WBEM) sensor picks up very few pieces of information when querying the hosts themselves, and trying to query VCenter doesn't work. These are on Dell PE2950 servers with the latest version of OpenManage installed and confirmed working. VCenter itself shows host hardware status without any issues, so the info is there, it's just a matter of getting it into PRTG.
Also, how is the ESXi Disk sensor supposed to work? It requires SSH which isn't possible on ESXi hosts. I've tried using it against both my VCenter and vMA appliance, and neither works.
