Datastores View

How to Exclude a Datastore from the View

There may be datastores under your hypervisor for which you don't need monitoring and which may add unnecessary data to your view.

To exclude any datastores from monitoring:

  1. In the organization tree, right-click the hypervisor whose datastores you want to exclude from this view's data and select Properties. 
  2. In the Excluded Datastores field, specify the datastores that you want excluded from monitoring. Separate multiple values with a comma. You can also use an asterisk * as a wildcard value.
    Note: This field appears only for those hypervisors that have datastores.
  3. Reconnect to the hypervisor for the changes to take effect.
