You can view CPU, memory, disk, and network statistics for an object in the advanced performance charts. These charts support data counters that are not supported in the overview performance charts.

When connected directly to an ESX/ESXi host, the advanced performance charts display only real-time statistics and past day statistics. To view historical data, the vSphere Client must be connected to a vCenter Server system.


Select an inventory object.


Click the Performance tab.


Click Advanced.


To view a different chart, select an option from the Switch to list.

The amount of historical data displayed in a chart depends on the collection interval and statistics level set for vCenter Server.
