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 – Some InfluxDB gotcha’s

Extra – Running Grafana on Openshift

Extra – Monitoring VMware vSAN

 

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

 

At VMworld Europe 2018 I did a session based on this series which was recorded. Check this post for more information and link to the recording

 

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