VMware: How to achieve a perfect metric collection interval with Telegraf, InfluxDB and Grafana

Greetings friends, I have told you in the past how to monitor your VMware environment using InfluxDB, Telegraf, and Grafana, and according to Grafana's dashboard, you are using it with about 4300 people in your Datacenters. All this is great, and I thank you very much for all the support and that so many people have the solution deployed.Now, I have read for a long time that in some cases you were having incidents when monitoring the datastores in a correct way, which generated that the Dashboard will not display correctly, creating a lot of frustration, but this entry will ensure you have everything configured correctly.

vSphere vCenter - real-time metrics

VMware collects information every 20 seconds from the ESXi and stores this information in vCenter RAM. This makes it really easy and fast to access this information by telegraph or any other information collector. All this information is stored only for one hour in the vCenter, in the diagram we would be number 3, accessing directly to the Performance Manager:

Looking for the Perfect Dashboard: InfluxDB, Telegraf and Grafana – Part XV – IPMI Monitoring of our ESXi Hosts

Greetings friends, we have spoken on numerous occasions about the power of InfluxDB, Telegraf and Grafana, if you remember not long ago I left you this fantastic post on how to monitor your vSphere for free and in less than 5 minutes: The post, and the Dashboards ready to consume, which have several thousand downloads, are very complete, but if it is true that many of you have asked me if we could go a step further and also monitor the physical part of the ESXi Hosts, using the IPMI.At the end of the blog posts you can have an interesting Dashboard as simple and useful as this one, where we can see the temperatures of the different components (it's different for each manufacturer, I'll leave you ready HPE and Supermicro):You can see it live without installing anything here:

Looking for the Perfect Dashboard: InfluxDB, Telegraf and Grafana – Part VIII (Monitoring Veeam using Veeam Enterprise Manager)

Hello everyone, in February of this year I wrote a script to monitor a Veeam Environment using the VeeamPSSnapIn, you can check it out on the Github page here.This post was a tremendous success, at even I had the chance to explain a bit more to the VeeamON participants, celebrated in New Orleans. But it has a minor shortcoming, it might run very slow and use some resources if the Veeam Environment is big.This new tutorial is based on the Veeam Enterprise Manager, and more particular we will use the RESTfulAPI, so it's important for now on that you have it installed and licensed.

Response times while running the Script:  VeeamPSSnapIn vs. Veeam Enterprise Manager RESTfulAPI

I think that one of the best ways to compare head to head both Scripts is to run some tests and note the execution time, on my Homelab environment I have: One VBR, 4 Repositories, 4 Backup Jobs, here you might find an image and a detailed responses:
