You can use the vSphere Client to monitor the status of vSAN datastore sharing operations.

vSAN capacity monitor notifies you when remote datastores are mounted to the cluster. You can select the remote datastore to view its capacity information.

The Virtual Objects view shows the datastore where virtual objects reside. The Physical disk placement view for a VM located on a remote datastore shows information about its remote location.

vSAN health checks report on the status of HCI functions.
  • Data > vSAN Object health check shows accessibility information of remote objects.
  • Network > Server cluster partition check reports about network partitions between hosts in the client cluster and the server cluster.
  • Network > Latency checks the latency between hosts in the client cluster and the server cluster.

vSAN cluster performance views include VM performance charts that display the VM level performance of the client cluster from the perspective of the remote cluster. You can select a remote datastore to view the performance.

Performance view showing remote VMs

You can run pro-active tests on remote datastores to verify VM creation and network performance. The VM creation test creates a VM on the remote datastore. The Network performance test checks the network performance between all hosts in the client cluster and all hosts the server clusters.
