VMware - vSphere Cluster and VM DRS Score as PRTG Sensor



Hello PRTG Team,

we updated to vSphere version 7, with this version the DRS Score was introduced. This score is pretty useful and we want to have it within PRTG.

We like to have the Cluster DRS Score within PRTG to see the "Happiness" of our Cluster and maybe the DRS Score of specific VMs to monitor important instances as well.

This feature is new so I like to ask is there a plan to create a Sensor to get this information?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Jacqueline,

we currently do not provide such sensor and at the moment do not have plans to implement one. If you want to see such sensor in PRTG, feel free to file in an actual feature request. The process how you can propose new features is outlined here.

Kind regards,
Matthias Kupfer - Team Tech Support
