Create a python script that gets performance counters from vCenter(API) and uploads them in time series database (InfluxDB)
1. To goal for this project/script is to query a vCenter appliance using the API
2. Get the performance metrics from the Database
3. Upload the metrics into a time series database (InfluxDB)
Script must run and complete in under ~5 seconds as it will be called every 10 seconds to populate the database.
Script must be able to list all available metrics and have variables to determine the metrics to collect
We are especially interested in storage (VSAN) performance metrics and memory usage metrics but the script must be able to essentially pull any metric from a vCenter appliance
