VM Monitoring


Is there a way to do a simple export of the average CPU utilization of every VM in a cluster? When I try this through the Performance (Advanced) tab, at the cluster level, you can't choose VMs.

If I do this at the host level and do a Stacked Graph (per VM), it exports loads of data.

I just want something similar to the attached picture. Seems like this should be simple enough, just can't find where to do this.

Thanks,

Scott

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll take a look at the links.

So, it seems surprising that something so simple can't be done from vCenter. Is it really required to pull this with PowerCLI?
