vSphere Data Aggregation is for configuring the aggregation of vSphere data (e.g. data center, cluster, resource pool, etc.), and to obtain vSphere data through API.
Note: Supportive for vSphere 5.5+.
The specific operations are as follows:
1. Click Remote Aggregation > New to enter the Select Source page, and click vSphere to make configuration, as follows: 
Field Name   Field Description
Host The IP address of vSphere Server
Port vSphere server open access port, 443 by default
Username Username to log in to the database host
Password Password to log in to the database host
Data Aggregation Frequency The frequency of log data aggregation, and the default aggregation interval is 1 minute.
Log Tag The tag identification of database log aggregation. Click Enter or comma to generate tag.
2. Click Next to Detect whether the host and port, username and password match: 
• Case 1: Detection failed - repeated host configuration;
• Case 2: Detection failed - the remote host and port unaccessible, possible mismatch between the host address and the port, or connection timeout;
• Case 3: Detection failed - username or password incorrect;
• If the host is added newly and the host matches the port, username, and password, the detection will be successful.
3. After successful detection, click Next to Finish, where the following steps can be performed: 
• Click Start Search to jump to the Search, and automatically search for the aggregated log data of vSphere Server;
• Click View List to jump to the Remote Aggregation list to view the status of aggregation tasks, etc.;
• Click Add More Data to Select Source again and continue to add and configure new remote aggregation tasks.
