Report with the utilization graphs for a group of VMs

I’d like the ability to have Turbo generate a report with the usage graphs for a group of VMs. I must get App Owner signoff for server RightSizing, and this data is demanded frequently to justify Turbo’s recommendations. I’d like to be able to specify the date range and the utilization metrics reported.

    This is an excellent idea. Yes, you can do this for single VMs at a time, but this request is to see it scoped for a custom group (i.e. a group of VMs). I have a use case for this as well, with the utilization numbers included in Action Center CSV downloads.

    Aggregated data is not what is needed. When I am trying to persuade an Application Owner to let me RightSize their servers (mostly scale-downs), they want me to show them the utilization data for each server so they can compare that with Turbo's recommendations and see if it seems justified to them.

    Hi,

    Unless I missed something, this is already possible natively in the Turbonomic UI. If you create and select a group of VM in the interface, all the widget would give you the graphs and data aggregated on that group. Wouldn't that work?
