hi Luc,

i have been reading yur notes on get-esxtop and trying to understand as there is lot of stuff there.

i also downloaded yur module from github but just thought of asking has anything being changed with new release of powercli .

also  are we going to run this with stats level 1 only  ??changing to stats level 3 will need changing the size of DB vmdk .

also what number system is 1E6.

The esxtop metrics are not related to the Statistics Levels in vCenter.

The esxtop metrics are only collected when esxtop is running. These metrics are collected at 5 second intervals.

And no, there have not been any changes to the Get-EsxTop cmdlet, and the metrics it returns, since its introduction.

You place all those files in one folder named EsxTopCollect.
That folder goes into one of the folders listed in $env:PSModulePath.

Note that my module, as I explained in the post, is a start, it definitely does not contain all mappings.

But feel free to contribute :smileycool:

There are a couple of examples under the section Sample Usage.

You use the Get-TopStat function.

You have to provide a VMHostImpl object (what is produced by Get-VMHost), not the name of the VMHost (which is a string).

Have a look at the samples
