Having said that, Let me move to this new dashboard which gives you some good insights on the storage utilization of your datastores and the VMs which are consuming that storage. Here is what the dashboard looks like:
So on the left you can see all the datastores which are being monitored by vROps in one list. If you zoom in you can clearly see that I am showcasing the Total Capacity (GB), Used Capacity (GB) and the Free Capacity (GB) of these datastores which can be sorted just by clicking the headings in the resource list.
This is an interactive dashboard, hence if you select any of the datastore for which you want to drill down and check the Virtual machines which are lying on that datastore, then you will be able to see them on the right pane where you will see the name of the virtual machines, and the corresponding parameters of Total, Used and Free space in GB within the guest file system.
You can always edit the widget and add the metrics which you would like to see against the Datastore or the Virtual Machine object. It is as simple as I explained here. While creating this dashboard is not a big deal, for someone who just wants to replicate what I have created, you can download the dashboard from this link. This would be a storagedb.json file which can be used to import the dashboard back in your deployments or vRealize Operations Manager 6.x.
