Hi,

 

Welcome to Pulseway community!

 

Thank you for your report. I've notified the development team and they will surely take a look at vCenter alarms as soon as possible.

Hi Rasmus,

 

Thank you for your post. Can you install PowerCLI and run the following script to see if the alarms are being correctly reported by VMware as triggered?

$esx_all = Get-VMHost | Get-View
$Report=@()
foreach ($esx in $esx_all){
    foreach($triggered in $esx.TriggeredAlarmState){
        If ($triggered.OverallStatus -like "red" ){
            $lineitem={} | Select Name, AlarmInfo
            $alarmDef = Get-View -Id $triggered.Alarm
            $lineitem.Name = $esx.Name
            $lineitem.AlarmInfo = $alarmDef.Info.Name
            $Report+=$lineitem
        } 
    }
}
$Report |Sort Name

Regards,

Chris

i created the above script in a ps1 fil, and tryed to run it after install of power cli.. i get no output what so ever, not even an error of the script.

 

the script is runned with one alarm in triggered alarms in vSphere Client.

Hi Rasmus,

 

We though as much. It's because the VMware API that Pulseway and PowerCLI uses happens to report triggered alarm statuses as gray (a.k.a. not triggered) instead of red (as the script is checking for). We are still working on getting a fix with VMware for this problem.
