vsphere_config block configures the
vmware_exporter integration, an embedded
to collect vSphere metrics. This integration is considered beta.
autoscrape: # Enables autoscrape of integrations. [enable: <boolean> | default = true] # Specifies the metrics instance name to send metrics to. Instance # names are located at metrics.configs.name from the top-level config. # The instance must exist. # # As it is common to use the name "default" for your primary instance, # we assume the same here. [metrics_instance: <string> | default = "default"] # Autoscrape interval and timeout. Defaults are inherited from the global # section of the top-level metrics config. [scrape_interval: <duration> | default = <metrics.global.scrape_interval>] [scrape_timeout: <duration> | default = <metrics.global.scrape_timeout>] # Integration instance name. This will default to the host:port of the configured # vsphere_url. [instance: <string> | default = <vsphere_url>] # Number of managed objects to include in each request to vsphere when # fetching performance counters. [request_chunk_size: <int> | default = 256] # Number of concurrent requests to vsphere when fetching performance counters. [collect_concurrency: <int> | default = 8] # Interval on which to run vsphere managed object discovery. Setting this to a # non-zero value will result in object discovery running in the background. Each # scrape will use object data gathered during the last discovery. # When this value is 0, object discovery occurs per scrape.
