VMware Virtual Machines Datastore IOPS

VMware Virtual Machines Datastore IOPS report reveals raw disk I/O operations per second (IOPS) of virtual machines. 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.
