VMHost-hba

commands/sec

_Total

Average number of commands issued per second on the storage adapter during the collection interval.

VMHost-hba

commandsFailed

_Total

Number of aborted and reset SCSI commands for disks on this host in the last interval.

VMHost-cpu

cpuCoStopPct

_Total

Rolled up total of CPU Co-Stop metric for all virtual machines on the host, expressed as a percentage.

VMHost-cpu

cpuIdlePct

_Total

Time that the CPU spent in an idle state.

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-cpu

cpuReadyPct

_Total

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

VMHost-cpu

cpuUsageMHz

_Total

Aggregated CPU usage across all cores on the host (in MHz).

VMHost-cpu

cpuUsedPct

_Total

The percentage of the last interval (0-100%) that the physical server's CPU was busy.

VMHost-net

droppedPackets

_Total

Total number of dropped network packets during the collection interval.

VMHost-hba

MaxKernelLatency

_Total

Maximum amount of time, in milliseconds, spent by VMKernel processing each SCSI command. It is the maximum of read, write and command latency.

VMHost-hba

MaxTotalLatency

_Total

Highest total latency value across all disks used by the host.

VMHost-memory

memoryActiveMB

_Total

Amount of memory that is actively used by the host, as estimated by VMkernel based on recently touched memory pages.

VMHost-memory

memoryAvailMB

_Total

Total amount of memory (in MB) still available. This is the difference between the system's total memory and memory currently being consumed. Refer to VMware Resource Management Guide for more information on VMware's memory usage.

VMHost-memory

memoryAvailPct

_Total

Available memory relative to total memory installed on the host (in percent).

VMHost-memory

memoryBalloonPct

_Total

Amount of memory processed by the virtual machine memory control driver (vmmemctl) for all VMs running on the host, expressed as a percentage.

VMHost-memory

memoryLatencyPct

_Total

Percentage of time the VMs on the host are waiting to access swapped or compressed memory.

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.

VMHost-memory

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

Total number of paths to storage on the host.

VMHost-net

usageRateKB/s

_Total

Rolled up total in KB for all network traffic through all vmnic on the host.

VMHost-hba

usageRateKB/s  

_Total

Rolled up total in KB for all disk traffic through all vmhba on the host.

VMHost

vCpuCount

_Total

Total number of configured vCPUs for all VMs on this host.

VMHost

vmActive

_Total

Number of active (i.e., powered up) virtual machines running on this host.

VMHost

vmShutdown

_Total

Number of virtual machines in a shutdown (i.e., powered off) state on this host.

VMHost

vmSuspended

_Total

Number of virtual machines in a suspended state on this host.

VMHost

vmTotal

_Total

Total number of all virtual machines on this host.
