Metrics collected are defined by associating ObjectType groups with Metric groups.
To see all available metrics, check out [this](http://www.virten.net/2015/05/vsphere-6-0-performance-counter-description/) page.
Note: Not all metrics are available directly, you might need to change your metric collection level.
A table with the level needed for each metric is availble [here](http://www.virten.net/2015/05/which-performance-counters-are-available-in-each-statistic-level/), and you can find a PowerCLI script that changes the collect level [here](http://www.valcolabs.com/2012/02/06/modify-historical-statistics-level-using-powercli/)

Contributions welcome!
# TODO
* Add service discovery(or probably something like [Viper](https://github.com/spf13/viper) for easier and more flexible configuration with multiple backends)
