Polling method for VMs

Hello,

When adding VMs, what is the recommended method for polling? There are a few choices, but the most appropriate seem to be, ICMP, SNMP and ICMP, and Windows/linux servers and also should poll for vmware be checked since those are VMs in vCenter?

Installing the agent vs enabling SNMP?   Differences or what do you get by doing one vs the other?

ICMP against the vCenter, ESXi or Hyper-V host source of your choice.

If you use our add a virtual device wizard, it takes the guess work out of this, and allows you to quickly add VMs for monitoring.
