    VMCluster-cpu

    cpuPressure

    _Total

    CPU Pressure is a percentage which expresses CPU overcommitment, by showing the ratio of virtual machine vCPU count versus the number of host physical CPU cores. This metric is unique to the Veeam MP for VMware and can not be seen in vCenter.

    This metric is based on the setting available in the Veeam Extensions UI named 'RecommendedvCPUPerCore'. This setting can be changed in the Veeam Extensions UI, on the Veeam Collectors tab, using Collector Settings link.

    This setting is used to calculate the cpuPressure metric per vSphere host by converting the ratio to a percentage. When the host is running total vCPUs (for powered-on VMs) on all host cores equal to the 'RecommendedvCPUPerCore' setting, then the cpuPressure metric will be equal to 100%.

    If the number of vCPU per Core is exceeded, then this metric can be greater than 100%.

    The metric per-host is rolled up to calculate a total percentage of CPU overcommit for the cluster.

    VMCluster-cpu

    cpuUsageMHz

    _Total

    The current CPU usage for the vSphere cluster (in MHz).

    VMCluster-cpu

    cpuUsedPct

    _Total

    The average of the physical CPU usage of each vSphere host in the cluster. For example, if a cluster was composed of 2 vSphere hosts and HostStats.cpuUsedPct values were 50% and 60%, then this value would show 55%.

    VMCluster-disk

    freeStorageTB

    _Total

    Total amount of free space for all datastores in the cluster.

    VMCluster-memory

    memoryPressure

    _Total

    Rolled up total of memoryPressure for all vSphere hosts in the cluster. It is expressed as a percentage, which can go above 100%. It shows potential memory over-commitment issues in the cluster. This value is calculated internally in the Collector, so is not visible in vCenter. Factors used in the calculation include - Total allocated memory for powered-on VMs, Memory overhead , the effects of TPS (Transparent Page Sharing), and total available physical memory in all hosts.

    VMCluster-memory

    memoryUsedMB

    _Total

    Physical memory usage on hosts in the cluster (in MB). The metric is equivalent to the VMware memory consumed.

    VMCluster-memory

    memoryUsedPct

    _Total

    This value is calculated as ratio of the sum of cluster memoryUsedMB and memory overhead for all VMs in the cluster vs. the amount of memory available in the cluster and is expressed as a percentage.

    VMCluster-disk

    usageRateKB/s

    _Total

    Sum of totalDiskUsageRate values for all hosts in this cluster.

    VMCluster-net

    usageRateKB/s

    _Total

    Network utilization, total usage rate at which data is received and transmitted across all physical NIC instances in the cluster.

    VMCluster

    vCPU Count

    _Total

    Total number of configured vCPUs for all VMs in this cluster.

    VMCluster

    vmActive

    _Total

    Number of active (i.e., powered up) virtual machines belonging to this cluster.

    VMCluster

    vMotions

    _Total

    Total number of migrations with vMotion that occurred in the cluster over the collection interval.

    VMCluster

    vmShutdown

    _Total

    Number of virtual machines in a shutdown (i.e., powered off) state belonging to this cluster.

    VMCluster

    vmSuspended

    _Total

    Number of virtual machines in a suspended state belonging to this cluster.

    VMCluster

    vmTotal

    _Total

    Total number of virtual machines in all states belonging to this cluster.
