Map creation using VMware SOAP sensor



Hi, I plan to create a dashboard for monitoring Vmware Server/Host. Currently, i'm using VMware SOAP (host performance) sensor. When i create a new map on the dashboard it only show cpu usage (while the sensor itself show other data such as memory, datastore, etc), is there a way to show other data on the dashboard?

dashboard map prtg soap vmware

Hi, thanks for your question here.

When adding the VMware sensor to your Map, what property are you assigning to it? To show all the channels on the sensor, a good choice would be the Channels property, found in the Data Tables menu. This should list all of the available channels on the sensor, along with their values.

I hope this helps :)
