I have a few questions related to VMWare monitoring that I
cannot find answers to in the documentation. Assuming that we integrate
Dynatrace Managed with vCenter but don’t have OneAgents on any of the VM hosts,
can somebody clarify:
Would problems ever be generated for specific VMs or only
for the ESXi hosts? Although I can see some metrics for the VMs that run under
a ESXi hosts, it looks like the Anomaly Detection settings would only relate to
the ESXi hosts and not to specific VMs running in the ESXi host. I presume that
get any problem detection and alerting for the VMs we would need to deploy a
OneAgent. Is that correct?
How does vCenter and/or ESXi hosts appear in the SmartScape? Although
I can click on the smartscape from the page where ESXi host data is shown, the
SmartScape that is shown doesn’t appear to show the ESXi host… a large number
of host, service, pg icons show but I don’t think they relate to the ESXi host
I clicked on.
Thanks for the reply and for confirming that we would, indeed, need agents to have any problem detection on the invividual VMs... the only point thing that remains unclear is what the SmartScape is showing...
