    Make a dashboard based on vsphere tags

    WinStime Novice

      Hi all,

       

      I would like to create a simple dashboard for my manager to show several basic parameter of our VI infrastructure.

       

      Thankfully to VMignite.com (he did a dashboard like that), i would like to add some metrics based on my vsphere cluster.

       

      A VM is made of 5 different tags :

      - location

      - environnement

      - application

      ....

       

      When i create the view that i will use in dashboard, i don't know how to deal with the string that is generated by vrops when reading the tag.

       

      Let me explain.

       

      This is what is seen :

      [<DATACENTER-Value>,<Environnement-Value>,<Application-value>

       

      How to create a view that will be able to read only Environnement value and display them in a distribution view ?

       

      By default, i have a distribution view with all the string. Each string is unique, so i have a distribution view that doesn't fit to one particular tag.

       

      I hope you understand what i mean.

       

      Thanks for your help
