Error Getting metrics from oVirt based platform



I have a Hybrid cloud with Openstack and oVirt as a Infra and Cloud providers, when manageIQ try to get the metrics from Openstack, it is perfect, no error there, but when try to get performance metrics from oVirt VMs, this error appears:

Any ideas about this error?

Thanks in advance

Sounds like the user you are giving as credentials for the rhevm metrics database does not have permissions to see the tables needed. In particular, disks_vm_map.


Its weird, because I validate the access to the C&U Database, I am using “engine” user to access to C & U DB of RHEV.

Thanks for the guidance :), I will try to access manually to check it.

Thanks Fryguy :smile:

Best regards


wow… it seems that this table does not exists on Engine DB:

public | cpu_profiles | table | engine
public | custom_actions | table | engine
public | disk_image_dynamic | table | engine
public | disk_lun_map | table | engine
public | disk_profiles | table | engine
public | dwh_history_timekeeping | table | engine
public | dwh_osinfo | table | engine
public | event_map | table | engine

The table disk_vm_map its on “ovirt_engine_history” DB, then this is the reason.

You was right Fryguy Thanks again for the clue :wink:

Best regards


The best way to solve the problem is following this documentation:

Enjoy :wink:


Do you need the ovirt-dwh module installed for this to work?



On 4 oVirt setups, 3 of them had DWH installed, and the fourth one had not, and was showing an issue when trying to authenticate on the “C & U” tab, though I had followed Redhat’s instructions regarding account creation and postgresql settings.
After having installed ovirt-engine-dwh and run engine-setup, the C& U connection worked.

I consider it too bad this error message is misleading and should be corrected.
