Can esxtop be used to view a VMs metrics on a certain day, instead of real time? If
so what are the commands to do it. Thanks

I looked at that link before, but it doesn't specify that you can look at metrics say from 2 days ago or maybe a week. It just shows you can change the update time but not view older info.
