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:
