Please share the best tool if we can use, to monitor CPU,Memory and Disk/Datastore/Lun for given time slot.

All Host and VMs are there on my VC,but I am looking for any automated solution to have meaningful info for given time frame..like..

CPU/RAM status for given Host and  given VMs, CPU/RAM resources division for VMs and Host, and ready,wait time, Disk/data store usage with respect to read/write/queue size and issues with VMs perf due to cpu,ram/disks ?
Thanks in Advance...

You need to rise vcenter statistics levels and consequentially disk usage will grow to capture disk stats history.
Once data is captured and stored you can analyze it the way you want.
Another choice is to purchase operations manager.

Thanks,but now i do not have VCOPS, and from VC monitoring is it something i have to schedule/configure manually,or if i can fetch anything any time for vms from Vc?
and for Host as well?

no need to check any logs from Sys log/old logs ?
can we configure something from vMa to get such stats report for fixed time slot like for approx 4 housr i need stats report for cpu,ram,disk,lun  ?

You can check the performance data from vCenter Server for any time, for VM and Host.

You need to set higher log collection level to keep IO stats and VM network starts, vcenter can display them
ops manager will draw some predictions from same data.

enter vcenter configuration and set log collection levels reading their descriptions. Also pay attention to DB size estimate afterwards.
