vSphere 6.0 Performance Counter Description

vsphere-6-performance-metricsThis is a list of all available performance metrics that are available in vSphere vCenter Server 6.0. Performance counters can be views for Virtual Machines, Hosts, Clusters, Resource Pools and other objects by opening Monitor > Performance in the vSphere Web Client.

These performance counters can also be used for performance analysis with esxcfg-perf.pl, or PowerCLI.
