The VMware Target should have the check box just like the Dynatrace Target (Collect Tag Information)

Right now if the same tag comes in from VMware and the APM target you're going to get duplication. Let the customer decide if they want the duplication. I recommend that the default value is YES. The other option is to have smart logic choosing wh...

Include VIO Servers in the PowerVM support

I think it is important to support VIO Servers in the PowerVM support. At least add an option to allow the user to include VIO Servers. We used to have data/recommendations for VIOS when we were using Densify, so we knew we need to right-sized the...

CPU Socket adjustment.

client: " I’d like to have Turbo always set the number of CPU sockets to 2, and to adjust the cores per socket # to modify the # of vCPUs when RightSizing. Currently this is accomplished with a custom script. I would like this configurable on at t...
