This report aggregates historical data and shows performance statistics for a selected resource pool/vApp across a time range.
The report shows tables and performance charts with statistics on CPU, memory, disk and network usage for the resource pool/vApp. The report also lists top resource consuming VMs and calculates resource usage trends for them.
The report helps you identify resource pools and vApps with performance issues, evaluate how efficiently your resource pools and vApps are performing, and decide whether additional right-sizing or reconfiguration actions are necessary.
You can specify the following report parameters:
- Object: defines the resource pool or vApp to analyze in the report.
- Interval/Start Date - End Date: defines the time period to analyze in the report. Note that the reporting period must include at least one data collection session for the selected resource pool/vApp. Otherwise, the report will contain no data.
- Top N: defines the maximum number of VMs to display in the report output.
- Business hours from - to: defines time of a day for which historical performance data will be used to calculate the performance trend. All data beyond this interval will be excluded from the baseline used for data analysis.
