    VMHost-cpu

    cpuLatencyPct

    _Total

    Rolled up total of CPU latency for all virtual machines on the host, expressed as a percentage.

    VMHost-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.

    VMHost-memory

    memoryPressure

    _Total

    This metric is expressed as a percentage, which can go above 100%. It shows potential memory over-commitment issues on the vSphere host. This value is calculated internally in the Veeam 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 the host.

    VMHost-memory

    memorySharedMB

    _Total

    The average amount of shared memory. Shared memory represents the entire pool of memory from which sharing savings are possible.

    memorySwappedMB

    _Total

    Total amount of virtual machines' memory swapped out to disk.

    VMHost-memory

    memorySwapRateKB/s

    _Total

    The rate of KB swapped (in plus out) per second during the interval.

    VMHost-memory

    memoryUsedMB

    _Total

    Physical memory usage on the host in MB. The metric is equivalent to the VMware metric memory consumed.

    VMHost-memory

    memoryUsedPct

    _Total

    Memory used divided by total physical memory, as a percentage.

    VMHost-hba

    totalNumPaths

    _Total
