Looking for a nedi based solution to get the topology including port at vswitch and network side interface
monitoring (traffic,errors,discards) between esx vswitch and vm-guests.
Want to avoid the need for accessing vm-guests for monitoring,
because its normaly allmost impossible to organize that all servers get SNMP enabled and
Read community or v3 credetials provided across all sub organizations in a company in timly manner.
SNMP walking the ESX hosts you can see the physical vmnics only. So we need to access the vSwitch.
1. Is it possible to give the vswitch an IP-addresse and could it be SNMP activated?
2. is there a ready to use perl script or module to can fetch
vSwitch interface data via the Perl-SDK?
3. if not, does anybody know the SDK commands for accessing the vswitch?
thx for hints, Steffen
