  • Centreon and ESXi 5.1

    Good afternoon,
    I'm a centreon newbie, I've just started trying the Centreon 2.3.4 preconfigured virtual machine on our ESXi 5.1 envirnoment, and I'm trying to monitor the memory, disks, cpu of my ESXi hosts, but , at the moment, I can only monitor the ICMP responses using default services.
    Is there any walkthrough to follow ?

    Any help would be really appreciated

    hi niclan,

    you can do this via the vmware perl sdk. i had this also up & running for about a month but the problem is that the scripts take too long to fetch the data and got hang for me several times.
    but you can try yourself:

    i would also prefer a native snmp request to a esxi server.

      Hi Burnout,
      thanks for your reply.
      I'll try the vmware perl sdk solution provided in you link asap .

      i would also prefer a native snmp request to a esxi server.
      I've already tryed to use snmp to get data from esxi host (after enabling SNMP on it) , using these templates :
      ->
      SNMP-DISK-/
      ->
      generic-service
      ->
      SNMP-Linux-Memory
      ->
      generic-service


      but when I check the dashboard i see these errors :

      ESXi1 Disk ESXi Unknown x.x.x.x 2w 2d 21h 24m 18s 2012/12/10 8:29 ERROR: No response from remote host 'x.x.x.x'.
      ESXi1 ESXi1 Memory Unknown x.x.x.x 2w 2d 21h 39m 18s 2012/12/10 8:33 ERROR: Description Table hrStorageType : No response from remote host 'x.x.x.x'.
