vROPS – Core Dashboard (vCenter and vROPS Monitoring)

This is a must-have dashboard for those who wish to monitor vCenter Appliance partition disk space usage and vROPs disk space usage filling up as well. Both are critical as it can lead to an outage on both products. This dashboard covers the following.

  1. Are my vCenter Appliance Disk partitions filling up?
  2. Are all my vROPS adapters collecting?
  3. Is my vROPS out of space?
  4. vCenter Alerts (10+ Alerts)
  5. vROPS Alerts (30+ Alerts)

Below is a user guide and a walk through of the dashboard. The dashboard auto refreshes each widget every 5 minutes.
