IHAC who is using ESA (w/ vCOps OEM) and is looking for the best way to display trends- mainly LUN latency. Basically he’s looking for something like the risk badge in regular vCOps- stuff that isn’t having an issue currently, but is trending towards a problem.
He can use the various built in widgets in the customer dashboard area to show top 5 luns via many means… For example, top 5 luns based on Read or Write IOPS. Top 5 Luns based on Read or Write Latency. Top 5 Luns based on Read or Write Bandwidth MB/s.
There is also a new widget type that is a Custom VC Relationship Widget that is essentially the same Health Badge Topology tree you see in the vsphere UI dashboard, except this one allows you to import custom objects such as the object types collected by the EMC storage adapters. See below
