I'm currently working on a VMware ESX Host, with some virtual machine on it.
I'm also trying to correctly monitor all those machines with performance counters given by ESX.
However, I don't understand some variables (few are given by the VMware API).
- resCPU.actav1 : Active time of CPU
- resCPU.runav1 : Running time of CPU
- resCPU.maxLimited : Limited time of CPU
VMware documentation (http://pubs.vmware.com/vi301/sdk/ReferenceGuide/index.html) is not very clear for those variables.
For some VM, those variables return more than 100%.
Another variable is unclear : CPU guaranteed. Even with CPU reservation on VMs, this value is always at 0.
Is it possible to have some additional information for those variables ?
Thanks for your help
Nobody knows what CPU guaranteed, CPU Active, CPU Running and CPU Limited represent ?
