Feature Request:Show Host and VM Power (Watts)?

Since vSphere 4.1 VMware provides host and VM power usage in Watts. It would be useful to have this information available via Monitor.

Hi Matt,

Have you seen our Overview report that does show this information?

Thanks.

Vitaliy,

I have just checked and now see it in the Overview report. It would be useful to see it in the monitoring charts. Would also be useful if you could add an associated kW-h cost variable. This would allow me to calculate my kW-h cost over time and Monitor could potentially estimate a cost going forward.

Thanks,

Makes sense, thanks for the feedback. I will see if it is an easy thing to add.
