Disk I/O Estimated Capacity for VM way off

So found this interesting today, noticed that one of my VM's the Disk I/O Estimated Capacity is way off of what is even remotely possible.

What would cause something like this?

edit:

Is there a way to fix it?

Interesting,

That is the MAX observed IO so it might be that there was sort of Caching somewhere that caused it.

Can it manually be corrected? I pulled all the data that I had for this VM and found that the max I've captured is 177,062 KBps. Am I looking at the right parameter?

Hi,

It is but what we do with the 5min collection is to take the max value and avg. What you are seeing is the avg 5min interval. At some point it was at that max you are seeing.

I would open a VM ware support call and here what they have to say in fixing it for you.

Haven't opened a case yet but maybe someone has had to deal with this. I may open a support case tomorrow for it if no one has any ideas.
