We are planning to introduce hardware monitoring as a new monitor type in Site24x7 VMware Monitoring.
The screenshot below shows how hardware-related metrics for ESXi hosts are currently displayed under the Hardware tab in Site24x7.
October 31, 2021
By October 31, 2021, we will be migrating these metrics to a new monitor type under VMware > VMware Resources > Hardware. All thresholds configured for hardware-related metrics in the VMware ESXi monitor will be deprecated by October 31, 2021.
For existing VMware ESXi monitors, the current hardware metrics will be automatically moved as a new VMware ESXi hardware monitor under VMware > VMware Resources > Hardware. For new VMware ESXi monitors, once the ESXi host is added, a new VMware ESXi hardware monitor will be added under VMware > VMware Resources > Hardware.
Why migrate as a new monitor type?
We have enhanced monitoring of hardware sensors with new features like:
- Support for new sensor types like cables, systemboards, and Bios.
- Detailed analysis including the status and count of all the hardware sensors.
- Custom dashboards.
- Threshold profiling for all metrics.
Let us know if you have comments on the upcoming new feature or any other specific requirements for hardware monitoring. If you'd like access to the beta version, email us at email@example.com.
