I want to add to a customized report the days since the shut down of a machine. I can't find a metric or a property that keeps that value. I tried with a supermetric as shown in https://www.tilkens.com/2019/10/tracking-vm-powered-off-duration/, but it only works with the vms that exists while the metric was created.
Is there any metric or property that keeps that value?
Thanks in advance.
There is no OOTB metric or property that will count the number of days. Eventho a super metric will get you far, I think its better to write a script for this...
Do you have Log Insight?
You could also use vRLI alerting to know exactly when a VM was powered off as this information is in the logs.
