Gather metrics about your VMware vSAN Datastores.
The VMWare vSan Extension allows you to remotely connect metrics about your vSan datastores.
We collect the metrics:
The Extension must be installed both on an ActiveGate and on the Dynatrace Cluster. See Deploy an extension in our full documentation for more details.
Extract the extension zip file to the
plugin_deployment folder at the root of the remote plugin module.
unzip -o -d /opt/dynatrace/remotepluginmodule/plugin_deployment custom.remote.python.vmware_vsan.zip
Upload the same extension zip file to your tenant. The Extension configuration and upload UI is located at:
Settings > Monitored technologies > Custom extensions > Upload extension
Create a new endpoint on the same screen, by clicking on the extension name (VMWare vSan):
This extension consumes DDUs, the formula is:
(5 * <number_of_datastores> + <number_of_hosts> * <number_of_datastores>) * 525.6
Example, an vsphere with 20 datastores and 3 datastore hosts would consume:
5 * 20 + 3 * 20 * 525.6 = 31.6k DDUs/year
Extend the platform,
empower your team.
