I want to monitor CPU, memory and network usage of my ESX-servers and my virtaul machines.

I have found machinename, if its powered on and some more "static" stuff under OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.6876 but I can't find CPU, memory and network usage.

Anybody knows what OIDs I should use?

What other stuff do you guys monitor on your ESX-servers?

Yes, VM Ware provides some information by SNMP protocol

Also you may use "regular" test methods like CPU Usage, WMI and Performance Counter (if virtual machine connected to network with its own IP address).
If you want to check UNIX based virtual machines, you may use Remote Monitoring Agent or SSH test

Thanks for your reply. To get this values with SNMP seems to be more complicated than I first thought.

First I have to go into some sort of lookup table to find where I can get the values for each virtual machine and after that I have to calculate the utilization. Maybe I can do this in one SNMP GET test or else I probably have to write some sort of external script.

I post here as soon as I have an answer.
