The host summary dashboard provides the health status and performance overview for the selected ESXi host and its child objects.
Datastores Status, Virtual Machines Status
The charts reflect the status of datastores connected to the host and the state of VMs running on the host.
Every chart segment represents the number of objects with a certain status — objects with errors (red), objects with warnings (yellow) and healthy objects (green). Click a chart segment or a legend label to drill down to the list of alarms with the corresponding status for host child objects.
The section displays capacity and performance summary for host CPU and memory. It also shows an overview for datastores connected to the host — status of the datastore, its capacity and the amount of free space on the datastore.
The list displays the latest 15 alarms triggered for the host and its child objects. Click a link in the Source column to drill down to the list of alarms for the host and its child objects.
Alarms by Object
The list displays 15 objects with the greatest number of alarms (including the host and its child objects).
The value in the Alarms column shows the number of errors and warnings for an object. For example, 3/1 means that there are 3 error alarms and 1 warning alarm triggered for the object. Click a link in the Source column to drill down to the list of alarms related to the host and its child objects.
For more information, see Working with Triggered Alarms.
Business View Groups
The section displays the list of categories and groups to which the host is included.
