Veeam Management Pack Metric Definitions and VC Events

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).
