Select Advanced instead of Overview.

I have such problem also with Oracle 10, and nobody was able to help, even VMware Support, so I just gave up and now we're going to upgrade to Oracle 11 - it should work here.

Yes I can do that but after a couple reboots and patching this still is not comming up. Is there a way to fix this issue? I don't like doing an upgrade then have the default tab indicate an error.

I am also getting the exact issue.

Perf Charts service experienced and internal error.

Message: Report application initialization is not completed successfully. Retry in 60 seconds.

We are using Oracle 10g (10.2.0.4) for our vcenter database on a remote database server. I read that someone thinks 11g will fix this issue. Why is that, anyone?

I am having the same issue, VI3 updgraded to vCenter 4 update 1, Perf Charts service experienced an internal error. My environment is a remote MS SQL 2005 cluster as the database host on a non-standard port. I have tried many of the other fixes without resolution.

Now I know why 11g would fix it: http://www.vmware.com/support/vsphere4/doc/vsp_vc40_u1_rel_notes.html

In the release notes section for resolved issues:

"# The Overview performance charts do not display when vCenter Server uses an Oracle database †

You view the performance charts through the Overview view of the Performance tab. If your vCenter Server uses an Oracle database, the charts do not appear when you open this view. Instead, the following error message appears:

STATs Report service internal error

Message: STATs Report application initialization is not completed successfully.

This error occurs because VMware installs a placeholder file instead of the Oracle ojdbc5.jar file with the overview performance charts due to licensing constraints.

This issue is resolved in this release."

This fix should not apply to anyone using MSSQL though.

Here is one of possible solutions for this problem with Oracle DB: http://communities.vmware.com/thread/211332?tstart=0
