When I selected my DRS cluster object in the vSphere console to see the following metrics:

Receive packets dropped
Transmit packets dropped

I'm unable to see it in the Performance | Advance tab.

However, when I select individual ESXi host, I get this error message:

performance data is not currently available for this entity

in the blank white window of the chart.

Any help would be aappreciated.

Can you try the following,

1. Restart the management agents on the Esxi host.

2. Disconnect and reconnect the host from Vcenter

Also, check the time on all the hosts are synchronized / correct!

Not sure if this could help,

This is normal, and expected behaviour.

However, when I select individual ESXi host, I get this error message:

in the blank white window of the chart.

Data should be available in the real time view.

I was able to view the graph, since there was no packet drops on the host the graph was empty (white) and didn't receive any error!

missing counters - yes!

I've checked many installations, and

the counters

Receive packets dropped
Transmit packets dropped

only appear, when checking an individual host, and selecting Real Time.

counters in real time
counters do not appear in other views
