Show metrics of 2 “linked” subjects in a view

This post was originally published on this site

Hi all,


I hope someone can help me with this. I cant find any information in the course material or online.


I want to create a view where in one row metrics are showed from 2 different subjects/object types.

Lets be more precise.


I do use the Citrix Management Pack from Blue Medora. I do have a lot of session related information as metrics for object type “Citrix VDA machine”. The “Citrix VDA machine” object does have a property “related virtual machine”.

Now I want to show e.g. Average logon duration for all VDA machines in first column and CPU Usage % of virtual machine in second column.


Table view:

VDA machine | VDA machines Average logon time (s) | VMs CPU Usage % | 23,6 s | 30%

(something like in SQL. SELECT, vda.average_logon, vm.cpu_usage from vda join vm on (vda.virtualmachine_parent =


How can I achieve this? In the wizard to create a new view, I can not find anything to link two subjects. I mean, the information needed is available in vROPS.

Or do I have to add custom metrics that are populated by another linked metric? Any chance with super metrics?


Any advice would be nice 🙂
