Use the datastore Performance tab to monitor how Storage I/O Control handles the I/O workloads of the virtual machines accessing a datastore based on their shares.

Datastore performance charts allow you to monitor the following information:

Average latency and aggregated IOPS on the datastore

Latency among hosts

Queue depth among hosts

Read/write IOPS among hosts

Read/write latency among virtual machine disks

Read/write IOPS among virtual machine disks


Select the datastore in the vSphere Client inventory and click the Performance tab.


From the View drop-down menu, select Performance.

For more information, see the vSphere Monitoring and Performance documentation.
