  4. Host and Guest VM availability, fault and performance monitoring and alerting:
    • CPU/Memory/Network statistics
    • Storage statistics

For Orion Platform 2019.2 and earlier, there is basic support in SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) to monitor Nutanix HCI (clusters, containers, storage pools, disks).  NPM uses the Universal Device Poller (UnDP) to collect performance metrics –such as latency, IOPS, bandwidth utilization, and more– via the Nutanix SNMP agent.
