|Title||agent_vsphere: Collect performance counters from vCenter|
|Checkmk Edition||Checkmk Raw Edition (CRE)|
|Compatibility||Compatible - no manual interaction needed|
Previously some counters could only be fetched from the ESX host directly. We now provide the counters when connecting to the vCenter as well.
If the special agent is executed against the vCenter and creating services on the ESX hosts via the piggyback mechanism, this may add the "Disk IO", "Datastore IO" and "Interface" services to the affected hosts.
