Viewing Events on Performance Charts

Performance charts for VMware vSphere infrastructure objects allow you to display the following resource-consuming events:

  • Live Migration (vMotion)
  • Snapshot creation events
  • Snapshot removal events
  • Veeam Backup & Replication events

This option can help you detect events that caused performance degradation. For example, you can see what was the reason for a steep increase in the network resources usage.

To display events on a performance chart:

  1. Open Veeam ONE Client.

For details, see Accessing Veeam ONE Client.

  1. At the bottom of the inventory pane, click Virtual Infrastructure.
  2. In the inventory pane, select the necessary infrastructure object.
  3. Open the necessary performance chart tab.
  4. At the bottom of the performance chart, select the Display known events check box.
  5. To choose what type of events to show on the performance chart, click the Advanced link next to the Display known events check box, and select the necessary events.
