VMware vSphere Top Objects
The Top Objects dashboards help you detect VMs and hosts consuming the most and the least amount of resources in the selected virtual infrastructure segment:
- Top vSphere VMs dashboard displays top VM consumers in terms of CPU, memory, datastore, network usage, memory swapped, active snapshot size, active snapshot age and the number of existing snapshots.
- Top vSphere Hosts dashboard displays top host consumers in terms of CPU, memory, datastore, network usage and swapped memory.
- Bottom vSphere Hosts dashboard displays least loaded hosts in terms of CPU, memory, datastore, network and memory swap used.
You can use this dashboard to choose hosts where you can deploy new VMs or to which you can move existing VMs.
To detect the most and the least loaded hosts or VMs:
- Open Veeam ONE Client.
