vSphere Clusters. Network Performance History

This report aggregates historical data and shows network performance statistics for selected vSphere clusters across a time range.


The vSphere Clusters. Network Performance History report is a linked report that is based on the Veeam Performance Report from the Veeam Report Library.

The report is based on the network usage performance counter. The object picker control for the report scope has a predefined filter which limits selection to Objects of the VMware Cluster class and Groups that include objects of the VMware Cluster class.


Data Aggregation: defines the aggregation period (Hourly or Daily).

Date/time Selection: defines the time period to analyze in the report.

Histogram: defines the type of values shown on the x-axis of the chart.

Split into sections by: defines whether the sections will be split by clusters, selected groups/objects, or counters.

Chart Options: defines the type of an object for which a separate chart will be displayed. The list of available options depends on the Split into sections by value.

Scope: defines a list of Groups or Objects to analyze in the report. The Add Group option returns a Group and all objects that a group contains (with all performance counter instances). The Add Object option returns only the selected object.

Counters: defines collection rules for performance counters to analyze in the report.

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:


I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
