For middleware solutions like Cloud Foundry, where the VMs don't have a particular name, we need the ability to send VMware custom attributes out in alerting. This is just one use case where this functionality would be helpful.
I found a solution! I have simply spent xmas memorizing the annotations to all my 3000 virtual machines Seriously though, SolarWinds dev, get the finger out! This would be an obvious feature ins any size environment. VM names mean nothing anymore in modern deployments.
