How do I setup individual minigraphs for a VMware Host Performance (SOAP) Sensor



When I setup the VMware Host Performance (SOAP) sensor I receive a single sensor with multiple channels. When creating a "minigraph only" status icon in the Map Designer I can only create a minigraph for the primary channel. I would like to create minigraphs for several channels (CPU Usage, Network Usage, Datastore Read, Datastore Write, etc.). Is this possible?

Hi Justin,

At the moment the map objects will just work with the primary channel, sorry. You can either use the Sensor Factory Sensor to create a new sensor for every channel, or add the same SOAP sensor multiple times and define different primary channels.

Best regards, Felix
