can we customize the list of metric that we want to collect in the vsphere module? I'm not sure if that's the purpose of get_custom_fields in the config. I've tried to add new metric such as ballooning, but does not seem to work.
Also, the metric names listed in the fields.yml file seem different with the standard metric internal names that we see in vcenter.
Could you please open an issue on GitHub for both of these issues. We can improve the documentation for the config options and make sure that the fields.yml is correct. It would really help if you could call out the fields that are different/missing.
Thanks @andrewkroh for pointing out that link on the custom attributes. Yeah, seems it is basically just "tagging" feature that you want to associate to either VM, host or global.
I'll open up issues for these in github.
