Starting to get my head around VROPS and the DataCentre Manager has asked me to generate a report on all the LUNS in the Datastore object giving him:
Total disk space used
Total disk space
Total provisioned disk space
No problems says I as, when checking, these metrics exist
Diskspace|Total disk space used
Diskspace|Total disk space
Diskspace|Total provisioned disk space
So, create a view, Subject is 'vCenter Adapter - Datastore', get to Data, open up 'Disk Space' metric - none of the three above appear, however I can see other Disk Space metrics just fine.
Next step, maybe they're not being collected by the Default Policy, so open up Administration-> Policies -> Policy Library->Default Policy and find the three metrics just fine, made sure they are 'Local' (they were 'Inherited').
Still no metrics in the View.
I'm 100% sure I've missed something silly - anyone got a clue what ?
Thanks in advance.
Thank you for your prompt reply daphnissov.
I knew it would be me being stupid - and it is.
Your screenshot shows me that what the documentation calls 'Diskspace|Total provisioned disk space' with a key name of 'diskspace|total_provisioned' is actually labelled 'Provisioned Space'.
D'oh - my bad.
Thanks for the help!
