The VM Utilization Dashboard helps the Virtual Infrastructure administrator to capture the utilization trends of any virtual machine in their environment. The primary use case is to list down the key properties of a virtual machine and the resource utilization trends for a specific time period and share the same with the VM or Application owners.

The VM or Application owners often look at the resource utilization trends at a specific time period where they are expecting high load on applications. For example, activities like batch jobs, backup schedules, and load testing. The application owners must ensure that VMs are not consuming 100% of the provisioned resources during these periods as that can lead to resource contention within applications causing performance issues.
