Monitor vsan.resync_dasboard From Bash Shell in vCenter Appliance


It’s been a while since my last post and this one won’t be too long as I’m very busy with VSAN at the moment.

Just found a very interesting way to monitor the progress of vsan.resync_dashboard with a simple bash one liner you can execute from within the vcenter linux appliance. Does not work for Windows vCenter

# watch '/usr/bin/rvc -c "vsan.resync_dashboard 1/Datacenter_VSAN/computers/Cluster_VSAN/" -c "quit" root:'PaSSW0rd'@localhost /dev/null 2>&1 | grep "Total"'


Feel free to test it on your VSAN Environments to proactively monitor the progress of the resyncs
