Export Vm statistics via powercli

We have a few vmware esx clusters that host 250{ish} virtual machines.   I would make performance stats available to some of our users.

I would like to export cpu/memory usage of vms and possibly of the hosts.     Graphs that show stats for the last hour/24 hours would be the end goal.

Something along the line of a powercli script would work, but I am open to other alternatives.    The only thing is, there really isn't money available to purchase any products at this point.

Any help would be appreciated.    Thanks.

Take a look at this scripted option from Virtu-Al

I use this on a lot of my larger environments in stock and heavily modified versions.
It creates web-pages for general consumption and I drop them into a web server so anyone who can access that will see these.  Its an efficient use of bandwidth =)
