Dear all,

Just deployed the Turbonomic 5.7 software yesterday and I am very pleased with what it offers . I was playing with some policy stuff so I can see if I can set a PoC for monitoring and I stumbled upon a very weird problem. How do you disable monitoring of hypervisor local drives and specific NFS drives that does not carry VMs?

When I go to Policy -> Analysis -> Storage by Disk Array -> Storage_diskArray-<Cluster_name>-XEN1/Local storage

There are 2 tables with options:

- Utilization constraints - here the admin can setup alarms for different % of utilization of the drive

- Storage Settings - here the admin can decide what is considered peak utilization (or max capacity) for the drive on which % utilization is later evaluated. The only thing that caught my eye is "Disable Datastore browsing" but it seems it serves other purpose than what I want.
