I'm having a looking at Profiler for the first time. In the past few hours I've added a disk array (via SMI) and a vCenter with 8 ESX hosts into Profiler (all from a single test Agent / poller).
I'm seeing lots of interesting metrics for Storage and vCenter, however if I drill down on a VM (that's hosted on the vCenter/storage being polled) I don't see any data under Storage for the VM's physical and logical mappings etc. - Am I missing something?
Also (!) what is the recommend number of ESX's / VM's that can be polled from a single Profiler Agent?
You might take a look at our permission document on page 16
It covers the permission requirements for Profiler to collect VMware data.
In general, we recommend 200-300 VM per agent.
