I am trying to create a custom view for storage and all I am looking for is Name, # of VM's, Storage amount, and storage used. I am been tryign to figure out how to add that additional column of Amount used. Any thoughts?
below I have created a screenshot of the Usage widget added into a custom dashboard listing off the storage data you were interested in so you can get a good idea on how to achieve this
if you drag in the "usage" chart from the create custom dashboard list and scope down to your datastores, this should get you the info you're looking for. You can have this in addition to the "storage info" chart if you'd like or just have one or the other, up to you.
