Customized VM storage report

Post by ArneLammert » Jul 18, 2018 2:47 pm

hello everyone,
I have searched the forum for an hour now and couldn't find a solution for my problem (maybe its too simple for you guys :D )
I want to create a report which tells me the total virtual disk size per VM for specific VMs.
Thats working so far with a 'Custom Infrastructure' Report with custom filter for the VM names I need.

But is there a way to sum alle selected VMs up at the end of the Report? It should look like this:
NAME; Virtual Disk: Size Total (GB)
ServerA; 10
ServerB; 20
Sum; 30

Thanks in advance for you help!

Hello Arne and welcome to the community!
Do you mean guest disk free space?
There is same for Hyper-V.

Hi Shestakov and thank you :)
I don't need the report for used guest disk space - we need to calculate the storage each our customers has been allocated in the report.
For example one of our customers has 3 VMWare Vms with each 100GB Storage allocated. We want to have an automatic report which shows the 3 VMs with each 100GB and at the bottom the sum of 300GB.
Is this possible?

Got it, thanks.
Custom Infrastrucure report doesn't no sum ups as it works with different kinds of data and simple addition doesn't fit all values.
I would save the report in .xlsx format and get the sum there.
Thanks!

Ok thank you - than I will do the extra step in excel.
Or does any other report sums the storage up for a business object or something similar?

Custom Performance are the only custom reports with sum ups. Custom Infrastrucure doesn't have such an option.
I will count your feedback as a feature request to add it in next versions.
Thanks!
