"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

vCheck Daily is good, and also using vCenter Server, for performance and reports, and also RV Tools. <--- All FREE!

with all that information you should be good, want to go one step further use Veeam One for FREE, or upgrade to vCenter Realize Operations Manager.

But you need to get rid of 5.1 is end of life!

That's the first health check! Upgrade!
