Hi,

I don't find what che channel 'power' of the soap sensor for a virtual machine, means.

https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/vmware_virtual_machine_soap_sensor

Maybe the virtual machine status like freezing or halted?

That channel indeed shows the current wattage drawn by the server. However, it shouldn't be just 2W, except you're running it on a raspberry pi :D Can you see any power stats within ESXi?

Hi, thank you.

So it indicates the power like WATT, not a power like 'status' (0=ok, 1=problems)

is there a way to check the healt of VM? Like if it's freeze?

It's the current power drawn in watt, yep. You could add a ping sensor to the actual VM - if it's not responding, the VM might have freezed :)
