asked on

how to limit what vCOPs monitors

Hi All,

I was wondering if it was possible to modify what vCOPs can monitor?  We currently have a 75 VM licence but over 75 VM's.  Not all VM's are required to be constantly monitored for performance so i was hoping there was a way to only monitor a certain subset of them.  

Thanks for your help

You need to purchase more LIcenses for your VMs.

Thanks for your feedback.

The reason the answers got a 'C' grade was that they didnt answer the question with the best solution.  

Here is a copy of the solutions i managed to find online that wouldve gotten a higher grade.  I apologise for not adding this to my response before grading.

No problem.  I can appreciate that.  I will be more mindful in the future.  Now that i understand the grading system, i will be able to provide grades correctly based on this information.

The answers only addressed the fact that our current licence schedule is inadequate and since i had pointed out that i did not need to monitor all VM's, i didnt think that i should have to increase our VM licences at this time.  As stated, i was looking for a solution that would allow me to monitor only our critical servers without having to spend any money.

I will grade the answers accordingly.
