The cluster-services metric group (clusterServices) tracks performance statistics for clusters configured by using VMware DRS (distributed resource scheduler), VMware HA (high availability), or both.

Cluster Services Data Counters lists the cluster services data counters.

Note

The cluster services metrics appear only in the advanced performance charts.
