Configuring for vApp Data Collection

If you intend to have vApp data reported in VirtualWisdom, additional configuration is required.

In VirtualWisdom:

  1. Navigate to Settings > Services Management > ProbeVM for vSphere Proxy > Set Properties.

  2. Add the following property setting:

    Property name: com.vi.vmware.virtualapp.vcenters.queryavailablemetrics

    Value: <the Hostname/IP name of the vSphere server probe>

    Use a comma-separated list for adding multiple vSphere servers.

In vSphere:

  1. Navigate to Statistics Intervals.

    The path might be similar to Configuration tab > Settings > General > Statistics, depending on the version of vSphere you are using.

  2. Make sure that the statistics intervals field is set to Level 4 on the vSphere server.

    This allows for collection of CPU, memory, and network statistics.
