Hi Cursten, 
Please contact the machine vendor to get the right OID,
  1. If it is for HPE servers, you can get the OID information at the HPE SIM software. 
  2. If it is for Dell servers/systems you can get the OID information from the Dell Open manage.

What do you want to monitor in VMWare?

What version of VMWare are you using? 

What is the actual problem - is it

  1. you don't know how to configure Pulseway to monitor VMWare...
  2. you don't know what the OID's map to...
  3. something else. 

Let me know, and I'll see if I can help!
