I'm in the process of re-registering my vCenter servers to VCOPS (with another username). Once in a while I have this error message:

Unable to connect to vCenter Server. Details: Failed to get RMI connection. Ensure that vcops service is running and retry the operation. Registration failed for VC : ( vCenter Server address: https://bla-host/sdk, vCenter Server username: bla-user, vCenter Server name: BLA blabla ) RMI interface unavailable

Yesterday I tweeted a picture showing off my Raspberry Pi with bi coloured LEDs (Red and Green). I've always wanted something to put on my desk, with LEDs, checking vCenters and/or ESX(i) hosts. After experimenting with the Arduino, I knew this system would be a stand alone application (requiring something like an external VM, doing the checks, sending the Arduino the status). I wanted a standalone device, as small like the Arduino, capable of checks against vCenter. As you all know, the Raspberry Pi is suitable for that task.

Goals in mind

While having my thoughts run freely, I knew I wanted something:

Looking a CPU load on every host in the cluster should allow that, but we are very curious what the ready time would be.

Ready time is a VM metric, but we want to know the 'average' on the whole cluster. PowerCLI to the rescue:

I'm writing a Powershell script on getting info from a View environment. One thing I noticed was the amount of time the 'Get-Pool' commandlet takes to finish when using '-pool_id'. Now I know the commandlets are not very well written (it is sooo 1980s to run the commands from a broker), but take a look at this example:

Measure-Command{$poolinfo = Get-Pool -pool_id $PoolName}
Measure-Command{$poolinfo = Get-Pool}
