Data Object Description

A set of statistics that are typically updated with near real-time regularity. This data object type does not support notification, for scalability reasons. Therefore, changes in QuickStats do not generate property collector updates. To monitor statistics values, use the statistics and alarms modules instead.

Properties

Name Type Description
balloonedMemory*xsd:int

The size of the balloon driver in the VM, in MB. The host will inflate the balloon driver to reclaim physical memory from the VM. This is a sign that there is memory pressure on the host.

Since vSphere API 4.0
consumedOverheadMemory*xsd:int

The amount of consumed overhead memory, in MB, for this VM.

Since vSphere API 4.0
distributedCpuEntitlement*xsd:int

This is the amount of CPU resource, in MHz, that this VM is entitled to, as calculated by DRS. Valid only for a VM managed by DRS.
distributedMemoryEntitlement*xsd:int

This is the amount of memory, in MB, that this VM is entitled to, as calculated by DRS. Valid only for a VM managed by DRS.
ftLatencyStatus*ManagedEntityStatus

The latency status of the fault tolerance VM. ftLatencyStatus is determined by the value of ftSecondaryLatency. ftLatencyStatus is: green, if ftSecondaryLatency is less than or equal to 2 seconds; yellow, if ftSecondaryLatency is greater than 2 seconds, and less than or equal to 6 seconds; red, if ftSecondaryLatency is greater than 6 seconds; gray, if ftSecondaryLatency is unknown.

Since vSphere API 4.0
ftLogBandwidth*xsd:int

The network bandwidth used for logging between the primary and secondary fault tolerance VMs. The unit is kilobytes per second.

Since vSphere API 4.0
ftSecondaryLatency*xsd:int

The amount of time in wallclock that the VCPU of the secondary fault tolerance VM is behind the VCPU of the primary VM. The unit is millisecond.

Since vSphere API 4.0
guestHeartbeatStatusManagedEntityStatus

Guest operating system heartbeat metric. See guestHeartbeatStatus for a description.
guestMemoryUsage*xsd:int

Guest memory utilization statistics, in MB. This is also known as active guest memory. The number can be between 0 and the configured memory size of the virtual machine. Valid while the virtual machine is running.
hostMemoryUsage*xsd:int

Host memory utilization statistics, in MB. This is also known as consumed host memory. This is between 0 and the configured resource limit. Valid while the virtual machine is running. This includes the overhead memory of the VM.
overallCpuDemand*xsd:int

Basic CPU performance statistics, in MHz. Valid while the virtual machine is running.

Since vSphere API 4.0
overallCpuUsage*xsd:int

Basic CPU performance statistics, in MHz. Valid while the virtual machine is running.
privateMemory*xsd:int

The portion of memory, in MB, that is granted to this VM from non-shared host memory.

Since vSphere API 4.0
sharedMemory*xsd:int

The portion of memory, in MB, that is granted to this VM from host memory that is shared between VMs.

Since vSphere API 4.0
staticCpuEntitlement*xsd:int

The static CPU resource entitlement for a virtual machine. This value is calculated based on this virtual machine's resource reservations, shares and limit, and doesn't take into account current usage. This is the worst case CPU allocation for this virtual machine, that is, the amount of CPU resource this virtual machine would receive if all virtual machines running in the cluster went to maximum consumption. Units are MHz.

Since vSphere API 4.0
staticMemoryEntitlement*xsd:int

The static memory resource entitlement for a virtual machine. This value is calculated based on this virtual machine's resource reservations, shares and limit, and doesn't take into account current usage. This is the worst case memory allocation for this virtual machine, that is, the amount of memory this virtual machine would receive if all virtual machines running in the cluster went to maximum consumption. Units are MB.

Since vSphere API 4.0
swappedMemory*xsd:int

The portion of memory, in MB, that is granted to this VM from the host's swap space. This is a sign that there is memory pressure on the host.

Since vSphere API 4.0
