I have OpenNMS ->Vsphere integration working.  I built the config files with vmwareconfigbuilder..  vmwarecimquery works and I see all the Temprature, FAN, CPU Voltage, memory temp, voltage sensors etc.   I need CPU performance metrics, Memory and Disk utilization. .. from vsphere 5.1



I've successfully compiled MIBs, added custom events, custom data collection, custom graphs for other hardware including storage and stand alone servers.     I'm only getting health sensor data from theopennms/vcenter integration.   How far has the OpenNMS/VMware integration evolved ?   Are you capable of gathering the metrics I need from the VCenter API ?

ONMS already supports vmware 6 since version 18~. So 5.1 shouldn't be able a problem. You don't need to build your own config files with the vmwareconfigbuilder or compile MIBs.

This are the required and default configs for vmware (latest version)

I claim Ronnys talk about this feature should explain what's possible.
