    vCPU Utilization

    JimKnopf99 Master


      i am reading the VMware Performance and Capacity Management book from Iwan.

      In one part of the book, he is creating a line chart with cpu information from a vm with multiple vcpu´s.

      In that sparkline, he has all vcpus in one chart. So you will be able to see if one vcpu has different utilization.

      Also unter the chart are the vcpu´s with color and name listed.


      But i don´t know how to do that. I didn´t get it how to create such a chart. I don´t know what metric is displaying me all those informations.

          Ig you go to the charts, select custom chart, select utilisation and then select all the vCPU on the server and apply that you will see that chart

            sorry, but i didn´t understand it. Could you please provide an screenshot?

            If i create a new dashboard, is line charts are presendet in the metric charts right? Or am i wrong?


            Think of i have a list of vm´s and mark one. After that, i want that line chart of vcpu utilization. so i could change from 6 to 8 or 10 vcpus.
