This ZenPack is developed by the Zenoss user community and supported via our online forums. Zenoss, Inc. does not provide direct support for this ZenPack.
Currently there are only two allowed datasources, VMwareHost and VMwareGuest. There are a few in development, and as I have time I will continue to add more. The data is collected by backend perl scripts which use the Vsphere Perl SDK. Would like to transition a python api but none are currently available, there is a pshere project but it hasn't been tested enough to be a reliable option http://bitbucket.org/jkinred/psphere/src/tip/psphere/. This zenpack is currently only being used by ZenPacks.community.VMwareESXiMonitor.
The device that you want to get performance data needs to be added into zenoss with it's fqdn (fully qualified domain name, also this must be lowercase because fqdn is case sensitive and will stay this way) as it's device name. If you followed the instructions in VMwareESXiMonitor I gave on how to add a device you would be gathering performance data with no problem.
First install the dependencies. Secondly install the zenpack from command line or gui as usual and you are set to go.
$ sudo su - zenoss
$ zenpack --install ZenPacks.community.VMwareDataSource-*.egg
$ zenoss restart
In order to do a development mode installation you will want to clone the existing git repository, and then use the --link flag with the zenpack command:
$ git clone https://github.com/ericenns/ZenPacks.community.VMwareDataSource.git
$ zenpack --link --install ZenPacks.community.VMwareDataSource
