Centreon VMWare connector to check ESX server, VCenter and VMWare guest resources

centreon-vmware

“centreon-vmware” is a free and open source project. The project can be used with Centreon and all monitoring softwares compatible with Nagios plugins. It's a Perl daemon in charged to get back VMWare indicators. This program uses the SDK Perl provided by VMWare.

The connector could get following indicators:

  • For ESX Server:
    • Current alarms
    • CPU usage
    • Memory usage
    • Swap usage
    • Interface trafics
    • Count VMs
    • Health status
    • Global status
    • Uptime
  • For Virtual Machines:
    • CPU usage
    • Memory usage
    • Swap usage
    • IOPs on datastores
    • Limits configured (CPU, memory and disks)
    • Snapshot age and consolidation
    • Thinprovisioning configuration
    • VMTools state
  • For Datastores:
    • Usage
    • IOPs
    • Usage in bytes/s
    • Snapshost sizes
  • For Cluster:
    • Operations on virtual machines (Clone, VMotion,...)
  • For Datacenter:
    • Current alarms

You can check one or X entities for each checks. Moreover, you can also "scope" it. It means: i can check the virtual machines of a datacenter(s) and/or a cluster(s).

Please follow the documentation for the installation: https://github.com/centreon/centreon-vmware/blob/master/doc/en/installation/index.rst

Examples

Check vmtools states of virtual machines (with name matching the regexp 'prd'):

$ perl centreon_plugins.pl --plugin=apps::vmware::connector::plugin  --custommode=connector --connector-hostname=127.0.0.1 --container=default --verbose --mode=tools-vm --display-description --vm-hostname='prd' --filter
WARNING: 1 VM with VMTools not installed |
vmtools not installed:
    prd-Reporting - 10.0.0.1 [description xxxx]

Check datastore IOPs of virtual machines (with name matching the regexp 'centreon-central-1|Formation'):

$ perl centreon_plugins.pl --plugin=apps::vmware::connector::plugin  --custommode=connector --connector-hostname=127.0.0.1 --container=default --verbose --mode=datastore-vm --vm-hostname='centreon-central-1|Formation' --filter
OK: All Datastore IOPS counters are ok | 'riops_Formation-Reporting - 10.30.2.89_R&D-BI'=0.00iops;;;0; 'wiops_Formation-Reporting - 10.30.2.89_R&D-BI'=1.43iops;;;0; 'riops_centreon-central-1_INTEGRATION'=0.00iops;;;0; 'wiops_centreon-central-1_INTEGRATION'=0.60iops;;;0;

'Formation-Reporting - 10.30.2.89' write iops on 'R&D-BI' is 1.43
'centreon-central-1' read iops on 'INTEGRATION' is 0.00
'centreon-central-1' write iops on 'INTEGRATION' is 0.60

Check the health of ESX Servers:

$ perl centreon_plugins.pl --plugin=apps::vmware::connector::plugin  --custommode=connector --connector-hostname=127.0.0.1 --container=default --verbose --mode=health-host --esx-hostname='.*' --filter --disconnect-status='ok'
OK: All ESX health checks are ok | 'problems_srvi-clus-esx-n2.merethis.net'=0;;;0;299 'problems_srvi-clus-esx-n1.merethis.net'=0;;;0;299 'problems_srvi-clus-esx-n4.merethis.net'=0;;;0;186 'problems_srvi-clus-esx-n3.merethis.net'=0;;;0;186
