Advanced charts support data counters that are not supported in other performance charts.

When connected directly to a host, the advanced performance charts display only real-time statistics and past day statistics.

Ensure that you have connected to a vCenter Server system by using the vSphere Client.


Select an inventory object.


Click the Performance tab.


Click Advanced.


(Optional) 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.


(Optional) To view the chart in its own window, click the pop-up chart button. You can view additional charts while keeping this chart open.
