User Story

As a PRTG User, I want the DRS Score from VMware vSphere as a Sensor within PRTG inctance.

Details of User Story

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.

Acceptance criteria

  • DRS Score of the Cluster
  • DRS Score of specific VMS (it could be simular to the VMware Virtual Machine (SOAP) Sensor)
