VMware vSphere Mobile Watchlist

Contributor(s): Tom Walat

The VMware vSphere Mobile Watchlist is a free application that allows vSphere administrators with an Android or iOS smartphone to monitor virtual machines (VMs) and correct issues on an infrastructure running vSphere 5.0 and higher.

The Watchlist app allows administrators to group important VMs and hosts into categories, set up alerts and look up and bookmark troubleshooting articles from the VMware knowledge base site. Clicking on a VM or host in the app displays the condition, configuration setup, resource usage, health and screenshot of the VM console. The administrator can use the app to perform tasks such as power on/off, resume/suspend, connect/disconnect or restart.

Mobile Watchlist was released in February 2014 and is currently available for Android (4.0.3 and up) or iOS (7.0 or later) devices.
