Morning Coffee Widget

This widget allows you to track the health state and overall resource utilization for the selected infrastructure objects.

Sample Usage

This section provides step-by-step instructions that will help you understand how to use the Morning Coffee widget. Consider the following example:

You have a very large infrastructure with lots of datacenters, which makes it difficult to monitor data in the default Morning Coffee Dashboard. You need to narrow the monitoring scope and create a separate Morning Coffee widget for a specific datacenter.

In a dashboard, click to add a new widget and follow the next steps:

  1. At the Template step, choose Veeam > Veeam Infrastructure Summary Widget.
  2. At the General Properties step, specify widget display name and description.
  3. At the Management Pack step, choose VMware.
  4. At the Scope step, click Add to choose what infrastructure objects will be included in the widget scope.

Morning Coffee Widget Note:

Keep in mind that Veeam MP for VMware comes with separate _vCenter Compute Topology and _vCenter Storage Topology topologies which have different root objects. If you add a compute topology container, the Morning Coffee Dashboard will not automatically add storage objects from that container and will not display storage information. For this reason, if you need to add a compute topology object, you will also need to add a corresponding storage topology object.

The Add Groups or Objects window will open. To follow this example:

  1. Select the Show all objects and groups option.
  2. In the search field, enter the name of the required datacenter.
  3. From the list of available items, select the VMware Datacenter object along with the corresponding VMware Datacenter - Storage object, and click Add.
  4. Click OK.
  1. At the Summary step, review configuration information and click Create.
  2. Click Close.

As a result, the widget will show the state of vCenter Servers, physical hosts, clusters, VMs, storage and resource utilization for the datacenter.
