    Hi Viktorious,
    interesting article, but I think that VM uptime is reset after a vmotion. This would make any availability calculation unreliable. What’s your view?
    Thanks.

    Hi, I’ve tested the scenario but I don’t see uptime being reset after a vMotion.

    Excellent post!

    I’m thinking of trying something similar for hosts. It could be used for SLA compliance, general uptime/downtime reporting and tied in with server costs to see how much host downtime really costs.

    I see the system host properties Runtime|Connection State and Runtime|Maintenance State could be used for calculating this uptime/downtime.

    Thanks

      Good one! I actually played with these counters in another dashboard. Specifically the Runtime|Maintentance State can be used to get a quick overview of which host are in maintenance state.

    Hi Viktorious, Thank you very much for this post, i was looking same thing since long time. base on super metric mentioned in this post, is it possible to get one month uptime report? like vm was up 80% and vm was down 20% in the month?

      Yes you can do this through a Report or a View using the available statistical constructs (you probably would need “average”).
