VMware Skyline

If you haven’t heard of VMware Skyline, you’re in for a treat. Skyline is free if you have production or premier support. You install a local collector, just a tiny OVF, and this feeds data up to Skyline Advisor. This data will help alert you to potential issues, before they cause you an outage, and also will allow you to easily upload logs and attach them to any open SR that you may have with GSS. The information it will feed into Skyline Advisor is currently, vSphere, NSX, vROPS, and Horizon. I’ll update this article with step by step directions.
