Add grouping filter to filter VMs by Storage Used/Prov

VM grouping has filters for groups by CPU or Memory sizing, would like the same filtering capability using Storage Used and Storage Provisioned metrics.

    Hi Simon,

    The use case you describe is what we would like to do. For example, we have superclusters that consist of both SAN and vSAN storage. We would like to create groups of VMs under a certain used size and direct those to the vSAN, and conversely restrict very large storage footprint VMs from making their way into our vSAN clusters. This is all in an effort to ensure our vSAN compute and storage are both utilized to efficiently. Today, without this ability we are seeing large sized VMs make their way to vSAN and consume all the storage before effectively using the compute. Not an issue in SAN where we can easily add more storage but for vSAN we don't have that ability.

    Thanks for the idea Andrew.

    Can you share a little about what outcome you would drive if you had these filters? Perhaps groups of VM's over a certain size to scope a policy to schedule storage migrations within an execution window?

    If others would like to see these filters then please upvote and comment.
