VM Memory Usage Report

Post by daburgett » Jul 17, 2013 2:43 pm

I am having trouble figuring out how to create a custom report for a single VM to show Memory Active and Memory Usage. When I create a custom report, it won't let me select a single VM...it only lets me go so far as to select an esxi host. If I use the built-in VMware Performance report, the only memory counters that show up in the report are Memory Balloon and Memory Consumed, which are not what I'm looking for. Does anyone know how to achieve this?

In order to achieve it you can leverage "VMware Raw Performance Data". There you can choose required object type (Virtual Machines), as well as, monitor subsystem (Memory, in your case) and explicitly specify a corresponding VM, using include/exclude functionality.

Thanks.
