Step 2: Deploy

SexiGraf appliance aimed to be deployed on a VMware vSphere™ environment which can be achieve via several ways:

Step 3: Configure

Starting from version 0.99c you can configure network settings during the deployment step and change them later thanks to OVF properties:

SexiGraf_Guest_Info

By default, SexiGraf is pre-configured in DHCP mode. If you specify network infromations, the appliance will switch into static mode.

Step 4: Add your vCenter information

In order for SexiGraf to retrieve informations and performance counters from your vCenter servers, you must add your vCenter info and some credential. You can do that very easily as we made some fancy SexiPanel just for you!

First of all, connect to your SexiGraf web interface (ie Grafana), which is listening on TCP port 80 so you can reach it at http://your_appliance_fqdn_or_ipv4/ and select the following dashboard: SexiGraf Web Admin.

 Default login information for web interface is: admin / Sex!Gr@f

Then you’ll just have to click on Credential Store and enter your vCenter information (FQDN or IP, username and password). Once you’ve added a vCenter, click on the Action dropdown and select Enable VI and Enable VSAN (if you got any VSAN cluster):


And here you are, relax and let the graphing begin! The SexiGraf collector will now retrieve information from your vCenter(s) and data will start appearing in graph.
