VMware vSphere Dashboard - Hosts (Grafana 9.x / InfluxDB v2.0)

VMware vSphere  - Hosts screenshot 1

Attention - Latest versions of this Dashboard have been built for InfluxDB v2.0 using Flux, you can easily see it under the revisions tab, grab the one you need for your InfluxDB v1.8 or v2.0

This dashboard contains two different sections, one to monitor the ESXi and vCenter Performance, and another one for Virtual Machines Performance. The Dashboard has variables to make it easier to use, and more suitable for all different workloads out there. The gauges are configured automatically as well to the Datastores you select, in case you have so many, consider changing the Min Width on the Repeat Panel.

You should download as well the next Dashboards to have the full Hosts and Datastores visibility:

Using the latest version of Telegraf should work, more information here
