VMware Device Datastore IOPS

VMware Device Datastore IOPS report reveals the average count of raw I/O operations per second (IOPS) for a virtual machine This report is helpful for diagnosing read and write efficiency and in some cases memory exhaustion.

High IOPS metrics can indicate virtual memory usage where RAM needs exceed allocation. Use this report together with the VM Memory Utilization and Disk Activity report.

Generate a report

Choose Device. Choose one or more host devices you want VMware Device Datastore IOPS information for.

Choose time constraints. (DateRange,BusinessHours) Choose times for the VMware Device Datastore IOPS. (For recently observed measurements, select Last Polled from the Date Range DateRange drop down list.)

Filter and reduce by row and by column. Sort and remove columns, group rows based on specific column values, and remove unwanted information from the table.

Chart, adjust output, and visualize. WUG17.0N-SP2-REPORTS-SETTINGS-IMG Fine tune report presentation and range of values displayed using the Report Settings WUG17.0N-SP2-REPORTS-SETTINGS-IMG dialog (optional).

Note: This report only returns VMware Device Datastore IOPS metrics for virtual machines when host machines have the appropriate VMware credentials. For more information, see Using Credentials.
