vSphere Performance

I have done a blog series about collecting and displaying performance metrics from a vSphere environment with tools like PowerCLI, InfluxDB and Grafana.

Part 1

Part 2 – Retrieve data

Part 3 – Get-stat

Part 4 – InfluxDB

Part 5 – The script

Part 6 – The Dashboard(s)

Part 7 – More data

Part 8 – Wrap-up and next steps

 

Extra – Running Grafana on Openshift

Extra – Monitoring VMware vSAN

 

The PowerCLI scripts that are used to collect the metrics are found on GitHub

 

Hopefully the series can give you some ideas and inspiration on how to do performance monitoring in your environment
