Hello Team,

Is there any process of monitoing disk space of individual VMs. I would like to monitor only disk space alert for all the individual VM hosted on ESX box. we do monitor datastore & device status but not be able to monitor disk space utilization of the individual host.

Can you please help me to find out any configuration which I can enable or is there any VBscprit which can meet my requriment.

Please advise.
