    Create custom performance counters?

      I heard about the demo at VMworld where IBM showed power utilization in the vCenter console and this made me wonder - is it possible to create custom performance counters so they become available for reporting in the same way that other counters are?

       

       

      An example would be to have a chart that shows CPU temp along with CPU utilization. The CPU temp is already read via IPMI, but doesn't appear to be stored anywhere.

       

       

      I looked through the SDK documentation and couldn't find anything specific - I assume that a new PerfomanceProvider would be required, but I didn't see anything that let you create your own providers.

       

       

       

       

       

      thoughts?

       

       

      thanks!!
