Data Object Description

This data object type describes a performance counter with a performance counter ID and an instance name. The instance name identifies the instance and is derived from configuration names. For host and virtual machine devices, the instance name is the device name. For example, the name of the disk or name of the virtual Ethernet adapter. For a CPU, the instance names "0", "1", "2", and so on are used to identify the numeric order of the CPU. The following special characters are accepted in instance for a query:

instance = "*" -- returns all instances of the metric for the counterId.
instance = "" -- returns the aggregated statistics value.


Name Type Description
