User story

As a PRTG user, I want to be able to select individual NIC's on a VMware host through the vCenter sensor.

Details of user story

I want to be able to monitor network utilisation of a single NIC on an ESXi host that is managed via vCenter. The current setup only allows for monitoring of all NIC's as a single group.

Acceptance criteria

  • Criterion #1 - After running a scan on the host, to be able to edit the sensor settings to select a specific NIC.
  • Criterion #2 This basically gives us a set of cornerstones that need to be there in order for the feature to be implemented.
