Please make sure to unblock the downloaded file before extracting into %programfiles%

Change the following line within %programfiles%\telegraf\telegraf.conf to match your Metrics & Logs appliance IP or FQDN:


urls = [“https://pa_appliance_ip:8086”]

Open a administrative command line and run:


net start telegraf

Add a new datasource to Performance Analyzer

Please select vmwareview as a datasource when importing:
