The Veeam VMware High-Granularity MP includes additional performance collection rules for advanced and granular performance monitoring.

This MP can be considered optional, as the metrics collected are not used in any out-of-box Veeam MP for VMware dashboard, alert, or report. This MP should be deployed only when specific advanced performance analysis is required. It should be enabled on a per-Host or per-VM basis.

noteNote

This additional performance data is very granular, especially as it is mostly instance-based data, and this MP should be used with caution to avoid heavy load and space usage in the Ops Mgr databases.

The Veeam VMware High-Granularity MP includes the following additional metrics:

All rules included in the Veeam VMware High-Granularity MP are disabled by default. To enable performance data collection, manually add vSphere clusters, datastores, hosts and/or VMs to the Veeam VMware objects for high-granularity performance collection group:

1.Open the Ops Mgr console using the account with administrative rights.
2.Go to the Authoring section and select Groups.
3.In the list of groups, double-click the Veeam VMware objects for high-granularity performance collection group.
4.In the Veeam VMware objects for high-granularity performance collection Properties window, open the Explicit Members tab and click Add/Remove Objects.
5.In the Object Selection window, search for the necessary vSphere clusters, datastores, hosts and/or VMs, add them to the list of group members and click OK.
6.Click OK to save changes.

For more information on performance collection rules included in the Veeam VMware High-Granularity MP, see Veeam MP for VMware Online Reference.

noteNote

If you already have a previous Veeam VMware High-Granularity MP version installed, do not forget to manually import a new version while upgrading Veeam MP for VMware.

After you import the new Veeam VMware High-Granularity MP version, you will once again need to manually add infrastructure objects to the Veeam VMware objects for high-granularity performance collection group. To do that, follow the instructions above.

For more information on upgrading Veeam MP for VMware, see the Veeam MP for VMware Installation Guide.
