VMware vSphere provides health monitoring data for ESX hardware to support datacenter virtualization. Health monitoring data is available from the VMware vSphere Client as well as from several programmatic interfaces. This document describes the basic architecture, the health information that is available by default, how partners and independent hardware vendors can extend the architecture, and how systems management vendors can extract hardware health information.
