VMware vSphere

You can install the VMware vSphere integration to enable Moogsoft Enterprise to collect event data from one or more vSphere systems.

When you use the integrations UI, you can only configure the visible properties. If you want to implement a more complex vSphere LAM with custom settings, see Configure the vSphere LAM.

See the vSphere documentation for details on vSphere components.

Before You Begin

The VMware vSphere integration has been validated with vSphere v6.0, v6.5, and v6.7. Before you start to set up your integration, ensure you have met the following requirements for each vSphere system:

  • You have the hostname or the IP address of the VMware vSphere instance.

  • You have credentials to connect to the VMware vSphere account.

  • The port for your VMware vSphere server is open and accessible from Moogsoft Enterprise.

Configure the vSphere Integration

To configure the vSphere integration:

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab.

  2. Click VMware vSphere in the Monitoring section.

  3. Provide a unique integration name. You can use the default name or customize the name according to your needs.

  4. Provide connection details for your vSphere system.

Configure vSphere

You do not need to perform any integration-specific steps on your vSphere servers. After you configure the integration, it polls vSphere at regular intervals for event data (every 60 seconds by default).
