you can export hourly / daily / weekly / monthly / quarterly averages as follows:
Note: the averages are from past period. So monthly average shows data from December.
Also Trends can be exported into XLS. Choose Period (i.e. 1 Month) and press "Save Report". Data from last 30 days will be saved into Excel document.
Does it help?
many thanks! Even after 2 years using VMAN I'm still learning new features. :-)
Unfortunately I cannot use the data export because data like numbers of vcpus or datastore usage don't have a monthly average value.
But "Save report" works fine and I'll use Excel.
still one question: If I use "Save Report" I can download the xls-file under Explore/Content.
But it's not possible to automate this through a scheduled report with the excel document sent by mail, correct?
You are correct. It's not possible to schedule this action. It's possible to create a new dashboard with a "Trend" widget and then "Create Dashboard Report" to get a PDF report via email (repeatedly). But it's PDF, not XLS format.
I already have those trends.
Is it possible to get those values through the CLI/API?
