From the host view you only see so far in the past, I think its an hour, and from the host view you will only see statistics from when it moved there. That article is out of date, see if anything on, the following link helps. Its when metrics stopped all togther
Thanks, but the problem is not related to the VCSA Management performance charts, the appliance performance charts work, the health checks of the appliance also pass without problems.
The problem only occurs on the ESXi servers (it shows on the management interface of the ESXi which I shown on the screenshot, and also from the vCenter). As you can see the host interface shows 0 Memory usage before 15:03, the same happens for CPU/Disk/etc. and the host was powered on with a constant load, so it couldn't be 0Mb memory usage.
From the vCenter the gaps shows like this on "Last day report":
But on the "Realtime" report the graph shows like on the ESXi interface when the data gets lost.
Did you get anywhere on this? I'm seeing the same thing across our 6.7U1 install base... multiple vCenters, different host hardware vendors, but all the same 6.7U1 version. VMware support has been less than stellar thus far when I've pressed them on there being a known issue.

I've just upgraded from 6.5 to 6.7U2. And i have the same problem for 2 hosts of 4. Four completely identical servers (HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9 with E5-2667v3 CPU) in the same cluster, for two of them the charts are ok and for two others i have exactly the same gap pattern as you. I have completely reinstalled one of the nodes having this problem. It did not help. Even after a vanilla install of ESXi 6.7U2 without adding to cluster/dVS etc the problem persists. I will do a VMWare support ticket.
Everything worked fine in version 6.5 (all updates) on all 4 servers.
Upgrading to 6.7 Update 2 did not fix the issue for us. VMware also advised completely reinstalling from scratch as a troubleshooting step. We have a rather large environment and this would be a huge timesink.
same here on 8 of 240 (Dell) hosts on 6.7U1
please update this thread once you have a fix
Any news on that ticket?
Same here on 2 out of 4 hosts. VCSA is Version 18.104.22.168000 Build 13010631, and hosts are all 6.7.0, Build 13006603.
+1 the "Any news on that ticket?" question.
I have the same problem on HP Custom Image 6.7.0 Update 2 (Build 13006603) , and same on updated Build 13981272.
The ESXi 6.7 Update 3 | AUG 20 2019 | ISO Build 14320388 solved the problem!
PR 2295425: Performance charts of ESXi hosts might intermittently disappear from any web-based application that connects to the vCenter Server system
You might intermittently stop seeing performance charts of ESXi hosts in the embedded VMware Host Client or any web-based application that connects to the vCenter Server system, including the vSphere Client and vSphere Web Client. An internal issue causes hostd to delete available performance counters information for some ESXi hosts.
I can confirm this, after 6.7 U3 the problem is solved
We're having the same issue, same build (VMware ESXi, 6.7.0, 14320388). If looking at Monitor/Performance/Overview of the cluster, when these gaps occur, we will be able to find a host (or more than one) where we are unable to view the Performance/Overview charts of that host - It will just say 'Loading...'. When this occurs, we are unable to perform Vsphere operations on any VMs on the effected host(s). e.g. Snapshots wont start, Can't launch a remote console, etc... until the performance charts start working again.
Is anyone else seeing these symptoms (delay in issuing Vsphere operations) when these gaps occur?
