Virtual Machine Operations Counters

Performance counters are modeled using the PerfCounterInfo data object type. Each instance of a PerfCounterInfo data object contains metadata about a specific metric available from the system. The virtual machine operations (vmop) group of performance counters tracks virtual machine power and provisioning operations in a cluster or datacenter.
