Hi all,


A prospect is using Vcenter with Distributed Power Management (DPM) implemented where host(s) in a cluster can be put into a "standby" mode. He would like to know if Nimsoft VMware has a metric for this so that an alarm can be generated.


Is there a way to gather a VM host's power state?

It seems a host's power state of "paused" = standby, according to this:


Please advise.


Thank you.
