Cloud Cruiser became HPE Consumption Analytics on Nov. 1st. You'll still see the old name in places while we update this site.

Output for different data types

Table of contents
No headers

The vSphere properties, or counters, you can collect for an entity can be one of the following data types, for which the collector generates output differently:

  • Simple types : These are values in formats such as text, integer, and boolean. The collector output for a simple property is the value of the property.
    Example: <name>MyVM</name>
  • Managed object types : These are object-oriented vSphere structures representing entities in inventory and other primary objects. The collector output for a managed object property is its id . To access the object’s other properties, you must request them directly as explained in Properties of child managed object types.
    Example: <datastore>datastore-148</datastore>
  • Data object types : These are object-oriented vSphere structures representing secondary objects not managed in inventory. The collector output for a data object property is an XML representation of the object, listing its properties and their values.
    Example:
    <extraConfig>
      <OptionValue>
        <key>virtualHW.productCompatibility</key>
        <value type="xs:string">hosted</value>
      </OptionValue>
      <OptionValue>
        <key>mem.hotadd</key>
        <value type="xs:string">true</value>
      </OptionValue>
    </extraConfig>
  • Arrays : A property can be an array of a managed object type or a data object type. The collector output for an array is:
    • Managed object: A comma-delimited list of the id of each object in the array
      Example: <datastore>datastore-148,datastore-149,datastore-152</datastore>
    • Data object: An XML representation of each object in the array, listing its properties and their values
