C&U data from SCVMM?

I have been trying to get ManageIQ to collect C&U data from SCVMM but I am not able to get it working. Every widget says “No data” and “Monitoring” is greyed out for the Infrastructure provider on every level.

Has anyone got C&U data successfully from SCVMM? Please share what the documentation isn’t telling me…

I have tried all the Hammer releases and am now on Ivanchuk-1. No change.

I looked at the support matrix for CFME 4.7. It says it should be supported. I even got a CFME trial a while ago but it didn’t work there either.

I run the SCVMM appliance version.

I’ve done the obvious stuff like enabling C&U Collection in the configuration.

Is C&U collection from SCVMM supposed to work?

Best regards,



Anyone using SCVMM successfully with ManageIQ?

…or anyone who have also tried and failed?


Unfortunately metrics are not available from the SCVMM provider. This seems to be a documentation bug with the 4.7 docs, the 4.6 docs correctly show this as not supported (https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_cloudforms/4.6/pdf/support_matrix/Red_Hat_CloudForms-4.6-Support_Matrix-en-US.pdf)


Thanks for replying.

I was hoping that it was implemented in 4.7.

Follow-up question:
Is there a way to get (basic) chargeback reporting for SCVMM without C&U data?


I think you have to have C&U to get chargeback, though count-based calculations might work? @gtanzillo do you know?

You can still get chargeback reporting for providers that do not support C&U collection. It is limited to only the allocated values and fixed costs, however.

OK. Thanks!

I’ll give it a try.
