Running vSphere 5.1. When I look at the vCenter advanced performance charts for a given host it displays performance data by inventory object number in the CPU graph. How do I relate the inventory object number to a specific VM?

If you need it for a specific VM. Please select the VM and then go to performance charts. That will show you the Usage percentage for that particular VM.

Abhilash,

  I understand what you're saying but I would like to look at the hosts CPU graph and know that object #20 is VMa, object #4 is VMb, etc. Thought there might be some easy way to relate object number to VM.

Found some 3rd party monitoring tools that made this much easier.
