What metrics can l use to generate the following report? Using vRops 6.4
Management wants to know how many vms and hosts get deployed monthly / quarterly / annually.
There is no metric that I know of that can do that. Not even creating a super metric. However, you may want to export it to a CSV file and create a macro in Excel to calculate those figures for you. For example subtracting last month total with this months total in excel.
Ok thanks Lan
