I'm not sure what the question actually is.Blog: http://lucd.info | Twitter: @LucD22 | PowerCLI Reference co-author: http://tinyurl.com/hkn4glz
I apologize , I now realize that this is not really clear.
Just looking for Cluster CPU Usage in GHz and Cluster Memory Usage in GB
Not sure about what metric is showing that.
Is that shown via:
Yes, that is correct.
One point to remember, these values are calculated by the DRS load balancing service, which runs on a 5-minute interval.
It might also be interesting to look at the "Entitled" vs "Demand" properties, to recognise VMs potentially lacking resources.
The "Demand" values are showing what the powered-on VMs in the cluster are asking for vs the "Entitled", which shows what they are actually getting.
But then again, don't look at these values on their own, combine with other metrics like for example CPU REadyBlog: http://lucd.info | Twitter: @LucD22 | PowerCLI Reference co-author: http://tinyurl.com/hkn4glz
Thanks a lot for the clarification,
I think the 5 minutes delay is precise enough for the Cluster point of view.
Will probably add more metrics like :
Get-stat -Entity $vmname -stat Cpu.Ready.Summation -Finish $(Get-Date) -Start $(Get-Date).AddDays(-1)
in order to have a better idea of the CPU ready Consumtion.
