So, I need to track where some of my vms move around to for Oracle compliance. I was scraping syslog with Splunk or plain old syslog, but that broke with the 6.7u3 update so I'm trying to find a better way to do it. I was thinking about creating a custom alarm that sends an e-mail or runs a script but I am not sure the best way to do that, so I have questions:
1) For the 'run a script' option, where does it run and with what arguments?
2) What target type (Datacenter I think) and condition would best catch all vmotions?
I realize this is probably an odd request, so if anyone has any insight into other ways to track it, I'm all ears.
Ok, so its a Virtual Machine alarm, not a Datacenter one. I was looking at the wrong part when I read that.
I'm thinking it would be one of these:
- DRS VM Migrated
- VM in Emigrating
- VM is Hot Migrating
- VM migrating
- VM relocating
but I don't know which one would catch all migrations (manual and DRS). I don't really want to create multiple alarms but I will if I have to.
