    Description:

     

    This script generates a health check report similar to that of vmwareHealthCheckScript but for the new vSphere release of VMware ESX(i) 4.x/5.x and VMware vCenter 4.x/5.x and it's managed entities. User's can now fully customize the report based on the categories that are of importance to their operating environment, including selecting specific set of ESX(i) hosts and/or Virtual Machines.

     

    The script reports on the following:

    Setup

     

    1. Download the packaged script vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.tar.gz and transfer it to your vMA host

     

    2. Extract the contents:

     

    [vi-admin@scofield ~]$ tar -zxvf vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.tar.gz
    vmwarevSphereHealthCheck/
    vmwarevSphereHealthCheck/vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl
    vmwarevSphereHealthCheck/healthCheck.conf
    

     

    3. You should now have a directory called vmwarevSphereHealthCheck and the script is located inside with a sample configuration file

     

    4. If you decide to create a custom user to run this script, ensure the user has a minimum of the following permissions:

    Datastore.Browse
    Global.Diagnostics
    Global.Licenses
    Sessions.TerminateSession
    Sessions.ValidateSession
    System.Anonymous
    System.Read
    System.View

     


     

    Supported Use Cases:

     

    1) This will collect information about all cluster(s)/host(s) providing vCenter Server:

     

    ./vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl --server VC_SERVER --username VC_USERNAME --password VC_PASSWORD --type vcenter
    

     

     

    2) This will collect information about a specific datacenter provided with vCenter Server:

     

    ./vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl --server VC_SERVER --username VC_USERNAME --password VC_PASSWORD --type datacenter --datacenter DATACENTER_NAME
    

     

     

    3) This will collect information about a specific cluster provided with vCenter Server:

     

    ./vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl --server VC_SERVER --username VC_USERNAME --password VC_PASSWORD --type cluster --cluster CLUSTER_NAME
    

     

     

    4) This will collect information about a specific host provided with ESX/ESXi Server:

     

    ./vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl --server ESX_ESXi_SERVER --username ESX_ESXi_USERNAME --password ESX_ESXi_PASSWORD --type host
    

     

     

    -


     

    Additional Commandline Options:

     

    Use a configuration file

     

    ./vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl --server VC_SERVER --username VC_USERNAME --password VC_PASSWORD --type vcenter --conf healthCheck.conf
    

     

    Please take a look at the sample healthCheck.conf configuration file attached down below

     

    Specify specific ESX/ESXi hosts to query

     

    ./vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl --server VC_SERVER --username VC_USERNAME --password VC_PASSWORD --type vcenter --hostlist hostlist
    

     

    where hostlist can be any filename that contains the display name of a ESX/ESXi separated by a newline

     

    e.g.

     

    [vi-admin@scofield ]$ cat hostlist
    esx4-1.primp-industries.com
    esx4-2.primp-industries.com
    esxi4-1.primp-industries.com
    esxi4-2.primp-industries.com
    

     

    Specify specific Virtual Machines to query

     

    ./vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl --server VC_SERVER --username VC_USERNAME --password VC_PASSWORD --type vcenter --vmlist vmlist
    

     

    where vmlist can be any filename that contains the display name of a Virtual Machines separated by a newline

     

    e.g.

     

    [vi-admin@scofield ]$ cat vmlist
    Norman-CL1
    ft-test-vm
    VA-Tomcat
    reflex-g2
    vMA-2
    build-centos
    build-ubuntu
    sam3testV2
    Rhapsody
    goldmaster
    test-vm1
    test-vm2
    dummy
    

     

    Email report

     

    ./vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl -server VC_SERVER --username VC_USERNAME --password VC_PASSWORD --type vcenter --email yes
    

     

     

    Note:

    Ensure that you have all the email variables configured either within the script or in the external configuration file, else the report will not be sent.

     

     

    Hostd Log

    To specify the number of the latest lines in the hostd logs, use --logcount \[number_of_lines\]

    (e.g.)

    ./vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl -server VC_SERVER --username VC_USERNAME --password VC_PASSWORD --type vcenter --logcount 20
    

     

    Cluster Performance Stats

    To collect basic performance stats from all Clusters, note that the duration of the script may potentially increase. Only use if you need and by default it's disabled.

     

    (e.g.)

    ./vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl -server VC_SERVER --username VC_USERNAME --password VC_PASSWORD --type vcenter --clusterperforamnce yes
    

     

     

    Host Performance Stats

    To collect basic performance stats from all Hosts, note that the duration of the script may potentially increase. Only use if you need and by default it's disabled.

     

    (e.g.)

    ./vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl -server VC_SERVER --username VC_USERNAME --password VC_PASSWORD --type vcenter --hostperformance yes
    

     

     

    VM Performance Stats

    To collect basic performance stats from all VMs, note that the duration of the script may potentially double. Only use if you need and by default it's disabled.

     

    (e.g.)

    ./vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl -server VC_SERVER --username VC_USERNAME --password VC_PASSWORD --type vcenter --vmperforamnce yes
    

     

    Output printer friendly format

    This will update the CSS in the html report to allow you to print the report in a friendly format

    ./vmwarevSphereHealthCheck.pl -server VC_SERVER --username VC_USERNAME --password VC_PASSWORD --type vcenter --printerfriendly yes
    

     

    -


     

    Custom Report Configuration

     

    There are 54 parameters that can be configured to display various categories of the health check report. By default, everything is set to "yes" except the following 4:

     

    CLUSTER_PERFORMANCE

    HOST_PERFORMANCE

    VM_PERFORMANCE

    VM_DELTA

     

    as these can potentially increase the amount of time the report takes to generate.

    Enhancements:

    -Added additional command line options to specify whether or not to includ Cluster,Host or VM performance stats, the default is to not display this information as it can increase the runtime of the script depending on the size of your environment

     

    Fixes:

    -Updated email functionality to have the report as an attachment

    01-21-2010 - v1.4.1

     

    Fixes:

    -Performance data was not properly displaying and now have been fixed for all 3 entity levels (cluster,host and vm)

    01-17-2010 - v1.4

     

    Enhancements:

    -Host configurations now includes vCenter managed IP Address

    -Summary of User and Group permissions for vCenter server

    -Host summary now includes Host & SCSI LUN Model attribute

    -Host state summary now includes boottime

    -Host LUNs now include additional information including Datastore,VolumeUUID,DiskName and DeviceName

    -VM network summary now includes portgroup information from both standard vSwitches + distributed vSwitches

    -Performance statistics (cpu/mem AVG+%) for both vCenter clusters and host

    -Performance Statistics for VM (cpu/mem avg + %, ready & ballon) is optional.

     

     

    Note:

    Enabling VM performance stats gathering can potentially incrase the script execution up to 2x. From the sample execution in our envrironment, the report went from 46secs to 1.3min. By default this feature is disabled and you'll need to specify param --vmperformance 1 to enable at runtime.
