This section allows you to observe the memory and processor resources resources, as well as the relative disk and network throughputs over the period analysed for a particular element. The latter being a virtual machine or a physical server. The dotted curves represent The dotted curves represent the maximums observed, allowing the exact time to be displayed. This is given in UTC (Universal Time Coordinated). The curves represent the average consumption over the past hour. hour.
|Metric Group RAM||VMware Counter||Notes||Stats type||Unit|
|RAM: usage X (VM capacity/host capacity)|
|RAMINTRA: usage||usage||Memory usage as percentage of total configured or available memory, expressed as a hundredth of a percent (1 = 0.01%). The value is between 0 and 10,000.
|RAMCONSUMED: consumed||consumed||Amount of memory consumed by a virtual machine, host, or cluster.
|RAMACTIVE: active||active||Amount of memory that is actively used, as estimated by VMkernel based on recently touched memory pages.
|Metric Group CPU||VMware Counter||Notes||Stats type||Unit|
|CPUMHZ: usagemhz||usagemhz||CPU usage, as measured in megahertz, during the interval.
|CPUUSED: used||used||Time accounted to the virtual machine.
If a system service runs on behalf of this virtual machine, the time spent by that service (represented by cpu.system) should be charged to this virtual machine. If not, the time spent (represented by cpu.overlap) should not be charged against this virtual machine.
|CPUWAIT: wait||wait||CPU time spent in wait state.
The wait total includes time spent the CPU Idle, CPU Swap Wait, and CPU I/O Wait states.
|CPUINTRA: usage||usage||CPU usage as a percentage during the interval.
|CPUREADY: ready||ready||Percentage of time that the virtual machine was ready, but could not get scheduled to run on the physical CPU. CPU ready time is dependent on the number of virtual machines on the host and their CPU loads.||delta|
|Metric Group DISK||VMware Counter||Notes||Stats type||Unit|
|DISKREAD: read||read||Rate of reading data from the virtual disk.||rate||kiloBytesPerSecond|
|DISKCOMMANDABORTED: commandsAborted||commandsAborted||Number of SCSI commands aborted during the collection interval.||delta||number|
|IODISK: read+write||totalReadLatency||Average amount of time for a read operation from the virtual disk. Total latency = kernel latency + device latency.||absolute||millisecond|
|DISKLATENCYWRITE: totalWriteLatency||totalWriteLatency||Average amount of time for a write operation to the virtual disk. Total latency = kernel latency + device latency.||absolute||millisecond|
|Metric Group NET||VMware Counter||Notes||Stats type||Unit|
|NETDROPPEDRX: droppedRx||droppedRx||Number of receive packets dropped during the collection interval.||delta||number|
|NETDROPPEDTX: droppedTx||droppedTx||Number of transmit packets dropped during the collection interval.||delta||number|
|IONET: received+transmitted||received||Average rate at which data was received during the interval. This represents the bandwidth of the network.
