Upgrade the Splunk Add-on for VMware Metrics

The Splunk Add-on for VMware Metrics is an updated metrics-based version of the Splunk Add-on for VMware. Some apps, including IT Service Intelligence (ITSI) and Splunk App for Infrastructure (SAI) require that you upgrade to the metrics add-on in order to use or continue using their VMware entity integrations.

If you're currently using the SAI VMware entity integration and you want to upgrade to SAI version 2.2.0 or higher, you need to upgrade to the Splunk Add-on for VMware Metrics.

If you want to begin using the ITSI VMware entity integration introduced in ITSI version 4.6.0 and you're already using a VMware add-on from a previous SAI release, you also need to upgrade to the Splunk Add-on for VMware Metrics. See one of the following topics depending on which version of the add-on you're currently using.

Upgrade from Splunk Add-on for VMware version 3.4.7 to Splunk Add-on for VMware Metrics version 4.0.0

To upgrade from the events-based VMware add-on to the metrics add-on, see Upgrade from Splunk Add-on for VMware version 3.4.7 to Splunk Add-on for VMware Metrics version 4.0.0.

Upgrade from Splunk VMware Add-on for ITSI version 1.1.1 to Splunk Add-on for VMware Metrics version 4.0.0

In Splunk App for Infrastructure (SAI) versions 2.0.0 - 2.1.0, all components you needed to deploy VMware data collection for SAI were shipped in the ITSI installation package within the vmware_ta_itsi parent directory. The add-on was removed from the ITSI package in version 4.6.0. If you've already deployed VMware data collection using the vmware_ta_itsi add-on, see the following topic for instructions to upgrade to the metrics add-on: Upgrade from Splunk VMware Add-on for ITSI version 1.1.1 to Splunk Add-on for VMware Metrics version 4.0.0.
