Looking over V1, v2 and v0, I have not found a way to determine the OS type of a virtual machine.

If that is possible, how would one do this?

If this is not currently possible, can we add some field to the API that accounts for OS system.
This is important for us to be able to auto-discover those devices when we monitor them, then accurately model those VM's OS's ..

Thanks.
