Instance properties handling

Looking into a couple of use cases we have a large VMware environment in which we dont want every VM as a device/resource . In LM it has instances for each vm . These instances have tags import from esx.

We would like for LM to be able to be to query Instance properties  for a couple of reasons . 

1) Dynamic groups - based on instance properties .  

2) Device by types  -  OS types for example . show all windows whether instances or devices. 

3) Alert by instance properties . 

Its a little frustrating in the data is visible in LM but we're not able to group/query/alert by these properties.  see attached image.

  • I agree.  Adding instance groups with auto-inclusion rules similar to device groups would be extremely useful for alerting, graphing, etc.
