Hi Vitaliy and everyone else,
I know this is a thread necro, as it hasn't been posted in over a year, but my company is currently looking into some reporting tools for VMWare, and Veeam is one of the pieces of software were currently evaluating. I actually created this account looking specifically for this answer. Do you know if this logic has been implemented yet?
For example, heres my use case: Looking at just the default alarms, I see there is an alarm for Memory Swapped. In my environment, we have a few machines that have swapped memory a very long time ago, but are not currently swapping. Because VMWare doesn't actively re-check and put those pages back into memory, the machines still have values in "Memory Swapped". I wanted to add an "AND" operator to the alarm so that it will trigger if there is memory swapped AND the swap in or swap out rate is above 0 (therefore showing that were actually doing some swapping at the moment).
Similarly, I have some VMs that have no heartbeats being received...because they don't have VMWare tools (not compatible). Sure, I could add them to the exclusions, but just for the sake of argument, it would be cool to be able to monitor something like "No heartbeat received AND vmware tools is installed", therefore reducing false positives (not to mention when someone deploys a new machine that doesn't have vmware tools on it yet, it won't trigger a false positive).
Make sense at all?
