VMWARE DATASTORE (SOAP) SENSOR reporting partially wrong



Your Vote:



Available Capacity, Free Bytes and Free Space are correct, whoever

Total Provisioned and Uncommitted Bytes are off the charts.

Storage is 8.72 TB with 1.27 TB free space; reported correctly. A single VM is on that volume, provisioned 9.63 TB and 7.45 TB used.

Equals to 110% provisioned but sensor reports >141% also "Uncommitted Bytes" is reported as 4.87 TB but should be 2.18 TB.

This is across all sensors on differend systems.

What am I missing?

Hello there,

We require couple of screenshots and logs to analyze this issue further. Such as the current version of PRTG, ESX version, one of the sensors screenshots etc. Therefore I would suggest, it's best way to handle such an issue via email instead of KB post. Please open the ticket via PRTG and from there we will check on this.
