Collects VCenter triggered alarms into Dynatrace.
This is an ActiveGate extension that connects to VCenter via VMWare's SDK and collects alarms about any entity on the VCenter inventory as long as it was a triggered alarm.
There are two steps to install an Activegate extension:
Environment Activegate server - Extract the extension zip file to the plugin_deployment folder of the remote plugin module
unzip -o -d /opt/dynatrace/remotepluginmodule/plugin_deployment custom.remote.python.vcenter_alarms.zip
<DYNATRACE-INSTALLDIR>\remotepluginmodule\plugin_deployment\directory. Windows likes to create a folder named after the zip file in itself, so make sure you do not end up with two
custom.remote.python.vcenter_alarmsfolder levels within itself.
Browser - Upload the
custom.remote.python.vcenter_alarms.zip file to your tenant
Settings > Monitored technologies > Custom extensions > Upload extension
