Common vSphere Performance Metrics

The set of performance metrics in vSphere is open ended. Metrics may be added or removed in new releases and the set of available metrics may vary depending hardware, as well as what plugins and add-on products are installed. Therefore, providing a definitive list of available metrics is difficult. The metrics listed below are the most commonly available as of vSphere 6.5.

To list the exact set in your environment, please use the govc tool available here

To obtain the set of metrics for e.g. a VM, you may use the following command:

govc metric.ls vm/*
