VMware Vsphere

VMware Vsphere#


The ML Pack for VMware Vsphere tells you how the virtual machines affect the performance of your applications and services, and offers out-of-the-box dashboards and reporting capabilities:

  • High Level Dashboard for Storages/Hypervisors/Virtual Machines
  • Inventory reporting for Storages/Hypervisors/Virtual Machines
  • Precision reports for Virtual Machine
  • Precision reports for Hypervisor
  • Precision reports for Datastores

The reports are designed to help you to:

  • Investigate performance problems
  • Plan Capacity for compute, storage and networking
  • Consolidate reporting across private and public cloud providers



Go in Configuration Management.


Click on the + button to add a new configuration.


Select the template Vsphere. Select the Collector on which you want this configuration to be deployed; and provide a Configuration Name that is meaningful for you. The Description is optional.


In the template, enter the correct settings for your Vsphere server(s):

  • specify the url and credentials for your vcenter server.
  • the user must have full read-only access on your vcenter.

Other configuration options are possible. Browse the template to discover them.

Once done, click Apply to start the monitoring.

Permission for datastore/orphans monitoring#

To enable the monitoring of orphan, an extra permission for the Unryo user is required on each datastore.

To enable this permission:

  • Step 1: Under Administration/Roles, create a new role adding only the permission to browse datastore:


  • Step 2: For each datastore where you want to enable orphan detection, you need to add this permission/role to your Unryo user:
