I have an ESXi 5.5 host , the licensed features are below. I would like to do monitoring of the vmware host performance , however the licensing appears to only capture previous 1 hour data. Is there a way to gather this info and record to file using a powershell plugin or through the vmware host settings itself?
VMware vSphere 5 Essentials Licensed for 2 physical CPUs (unlimited cores per CPU)
