collect additional ESXI metrics

Hi guys

Here is a question we got from one of our customers: is it possible for Dynatrace to collect additional ESXI
metrics, for example%VMWAIT, %CSTP, GAVG
etc (like esxtop shows)?

%CSTP is probably shown as CPU ready time we see on host level, question is three any plans / way to add other metrics?

Thanks in advance

Yos

You can always create custom network device, define custom metrics and push your data via custom script to DT through API

In this example you should create custom network device that will be representation of each esxi and push metrics there. It may be possible as well via active gate plugin

You have to check.
