vCenter by itself does not have the reporting functionality you are looking for. You would have to go with a 3rd Party like Hyper9(Solarwinds), Vizioncore, Veeam, eG Innovations....etc
Thanks for the reply, I do have Veeam Monitor 5.0 installed that can be used for reporting purposes but was thinking if vCenter Server 4.1 had some reporting functionalities then I could remove Veeam Monitor 5.0 from my systems and have 1 less application to manage.
no, vCenter is not a monitoring and reporting tool, it's a management tool. With that said, most 3rd party tools listed above compliment vCenter and integrate into vCenter very well.
If you are looking for a VMware product, then VMware Alive would be a great choice.
Well in that case I think will continue using Veeam Monitor as am used to it and serves the purpose. I just thought if vCenter Server had some reporting functionality so as to make life simpler and everything is centrally managed.
Thanks for your responses.
In the performance tab con can export the graphic, or in the general inventory you can export all the vms, esx etc.
Today you havent an owner tool for reporting, maybe using vmware vcenter operations you have a more detailed info.
Like Troy, you can buy 3r party tools for that like vizioncore quest foglight, etc.
