How to create a dashboard showing VMs with memory limits

A common problem I see when deploying vFoglight into environments are VMs with fixed memory limits. This VMware setting will cause performance problems for the affected VMs, ESX hosts and Storage subsystem.

There are predefined alerts within vFoglight that find these problems and also tell you how to resolve it. I am going to build a dashboard that will show all VMs that are configured with fixed memory limits.

  

       

This is just one example of how to build a custom dashboard. It´s possible to show almost anything, only your imagination is the limit or was it the memory limit :)

Good luck with creating your own dashboards!
