Thanks for the feedback.
thank you for improving the Dashboard. It works way better now, I can actually get valuable data from it (I was too experiencing the blank views as some other user complained about). Usability is much better, and intensive CPU utilization seems to be less evident (vROPs CPU goes to 100% but for way shorter periods of time).
One more thing though (in the context of providing feedback for improvements): in the Idle VMs view the Sum on the % of Idle CPU doesn't make a lot of sense.
Perhaps it'd be better to replace it with an average? Or maybe provide the same data as the High CPU view? Just my 2 cents...
Perfect, that worked, thanks so much!
Firstly thank you for the great work!
However, on the dashboards I can see that ESXi version 6.5.0-7526125 is listed on "ESXi than have not been patched"
This is the latest version of ESXi which should include meltdown patches.
is this a bug in the dashboard, or am I missing something?

The filter on the views need to be updated for the current patches that have been released. I personally found that the build numbers for 5.5 needed to be updated to match the patches released on 1/22/18. The vcenter appliance views might also need some help depending on if you are windows, appliance, upgrade or fresh install.
I see my vCSA 6.5U1f is listed as it must be patched. I fixed it by editing the "M+S Bug: VM Appliances (Below Minimum)" view and added another filter to "4.data - filter" criteria (6.5.0-7801515):
That made my vCenter disappear in the "CPU Bug: vSphere Patching" Dashboard, with "vCenter Server Appliances to be patched" dashboard view.
Just thought I'd add it to the discussion.
