Sums of metrics of VMs

Hello,

I can't figure out if it's possible to create the kind of dashboard I want:

I have virtual machines that have been assigned a tag "Sys1" in my vCenter.

How to create a dashboard that summarizes the metrics of certain virtual machines?

CPU Count (Cores) of all VMs "Sys1"

Memory Granted of all VMs "Sys1"

Disk Provisioned of all VMs  "Sys1"

etc.

I created a custom group called "sys1" with defined membership criteria "Virtual Machine" - Properties - Summary | vSphere Tag - Contains - Sys1"

But then, wherever I try to apply this group, I can only look at the resources of each machine individually.

Please, help me Smiley Happy

Thank you!

Standard sum SM's and will work when you apply them to the group

sum(${adaptertype=VMWARE, objecttype=VirtualMachine, metric=cpu|corecount_provisioned, depth=1})

sum(${adaptertype=VMWARE, objecttype=VirtualMachine, metric=mem|guest_usage, depth=1})

sum(${adaptertype=VMWARE, objecttype=VirtualMachine, metric=diskspace|provisionedSpace, depth=1})

The next method is view with summary,please refer to "How to Add a Summary Row or Column to a View" in https://docs.vmware.com/en/vRealize-Operations-Manager/8.0/com.vmware.vcom.config.doc/GUID-FA44BAFA-...

I was able to make a list that outputs a summary metric on the virtual machines. I don't understand how to draw the summary chart Smiley Sad

I got it. It is necessary to create a new super metric, as advised by sxnxr, apply it to the default policy. After that, you can draw a chart metric using it. Damn, It was very easy to do, but difficult to understand.
