This dashboard gives an overview of the utilization on VMware vSphere datastores. Data is pulled from vCenter with the vSphere plugin of the Telegraf agent. The data is stored in an InfluxDB timeseries database.

The dashboard shows the current free space in percentage for all datastores, and a trend of the utilization for a configurable time range.

Note that the variable query for InfluxDB can return stale tags if retention is not set up on your database. See this post for more information
