How can I monitor the performance not even from one single ESX Host but the hole ESX Cluster with PRTG ? I want to define a rule which alerts me when the ESX Cluster CPU Performance increases 15% or something else.

You can run the ESX sensors against the vCentre.

@ Christoph: Thanks for your note, but when I define a sensor from Type VMWare Hostserver Performance (SOAP) I get the CPU from every ESX host installed in the Cluster seperatly - I want the CPU usage from all ESX Hosts in one value. In the PowerCLI it is the property cpu.usage.average from the Get-Stat cmdlet.

I solved it. I defined for every ESX Host the SOAP sensor and after that I created a formula sensor and add all the single CPU counts to one overall.
