VMware dashboard

Information from vCenter software is discovered and used for VMware reconciliation. Discovery uses these probes and populates these tables:
  • vCenter probe VMware - vCenter ESX Hosts License
  • VMware Discovered License Key [samp_vmware_license_key] and VMware Discovered License Key Consumption [samp_vmware_license_key_usage] tables

For more information, see vCenter discovery with Software Asset Management.
