Purpose

Some customers want to create custom alerts, change settings within their VC, or verify what type of data is being collected.  Veeam supplies a list of what Metrics and Events that we use for Veeam Management Pack.

Solution

Here is a list of the Veeam Management Pack for VMware Metrics:

Here is a list of the vCenter Events:

https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/mp/vmware_reference/vcenter_events.html?ver=90

An example of how to use these 2 list is if you wanted to know how to create an alert for when a VM loses network connectivity, you would use the vCenter Events list (answer: VmNetworkFailedEvent) and if you wanted to know VM CPU usage you would use the Metrics list (answer: cpuUsedPct for percent or cpuUsageMhz for Mhz).
