We are running view 5.2 and would like to be able to get a report on usage. we would like to be able to see how many users were connected at a time and one step beyond that would be what pool but that's not as important.
Can this be done?
There is no built in reporting with View. If you setup the events database then you can try a few different sql queries to see if you can get the information you need. You can also look into VCOPS for View to see if it would provide the information you need.
thanks for the info.. don't know if this is the right place to ask but when reviewing the VCOPS for view installation guide one of the prerequisites is Verify that you have a valid license key for vCenter Operations Manager Enterprise.
so does that mean we need to have 2 licences 1 for VCOP Enterprise and 1 for VCOPS for view?
No, that is part of the vCops for View license.
