vRA Agent Status Down - how to monitor..

Jump to solution

Hi Folks,

is there a URL or something on the Agent server that we can query to find out the status of the vCenter agents? ( or where can we get that information). I know I can see it in the 'compute resource'  in the GUI, but I'm not going to be checking that 24x7 🙂 , I'd like to have a vRO workflow that polls to see the status, and alert me if it's down, ( I'd even expand that to auto restart the service :-)) , but I can't seem to find where I could check for that status.

     Thanks in advance,

          John.

If anyone's interested, I  logged a call.. You can get the proxy agent(s) status from :

There is no direct public access API for this.

If you want to monitor the proxy agent status you can try reaching this URL (you will have to use the service account for VRA that you use on your iaas node).

https://iaas_node.vmware.local/repository/data/ManagementModelEntities.svc/Agent

Then you have a field.

<d:AgentAlive m:type="Edm.Boolean">false</d:AgentAlive>

False = DOWN

True = UP
