    Confused on OS vs Vcenter performance metrics differences

    taylorb Expert

      IN the past week I have seen both sides of this and I am getting confused.  I know I always hear that the counters may not match, but I can't seem to make sense of why.    

       

      Last week I had a VM that from the Windows side was nearly unresponsive and pegged at 100%.  However, Vmware CPU and ready counters showed little activity.      Today I have a VM showing 100% CPU from the Vmware side, but when I check windows, the VM seems happy and responsive with task manager showing 20-40% util.   How can it be so different?
