We currently use Vcenter for most of our VM environment, but have several ESXi hosts at remote sites.  I would like to know what others are using for reporting.

Netscaler Common Configuration How To guides

If you use NetScaler you will want to see these guides. The NetScaler How To Guides show administrators how to get NetScaler up and configured by providing instructions for common scenarios and some not so common ones.

@AndyK167:  The ecoshell has been replaced with PowerGui @ powergui.org.  It has vmware plugin that allows for visio diagrams, reports, etc..  Good stuff

Hi

Like coolsport00 says, the Veeam Reporter is the best tool for this.

I have seen many tools to analyze, optimize and management of virtual infrastructures, but reporter is in my opinion the best I have worked. The free version have some features disable, but the full version is very complete with very, very information. You can donwload and use for 30 days.

You can create visio reports with you network, storage, vMotion designs and lots other reports.

For your remote sites, you just need t have network connections to use it.

If you want to choose another tool, VM Turbo also have good information.

Not complete as reporter, but also good useful information. Work as an Virtual Appliance.

Hope this can help.
