Vmware property used to automatically define datacenter auto-discovery ?

AurelienGravier

Hello,

 

Datacenters names are not auto-detected correctly on Smartscape for all my Vmware clusters. I know that we could configure it manually through "Settings -> Web and Mobile Monitoring -> Geo Locations".


But do you have an idea about the VMWARE parameters, configuration or properties which are used by Dynatrace to autodiscover the datacenter name ?

 

The goal is to adapt the Vmware deployment procedure to be persistent on Dynatrace.

Thank you.

Regards Aurélien.

FYI,

After my investiguation, the VmWare property "datacenter" is automatically collected by Dynatrace when VmWare monitoring is enabled :

I don't know yet why this property is sometimes not available for some Vmware clusters because it seems to be a mandatory property (version ? permissions ?...).

If none applies, then there is the fallback to trying to resolve the IP address of the sender of the OsiInfo message to a geolocation (cf support).

 

The workaround is to map IP to location manually on "Settings -> Web and Mobile Monitoring -> Geo Locations".

 

Regards, Aurélien.
