Management Agent Counters

Performance counters are modeled using the PerfCounterInfo data object type. Each instance of a PerfCounterInfo data object contains metadata about a specific metric available from the system. The managementAgent group of performance counters supports metrics that track consumption of resources by the various management agents (hostd, vpxd, and so on) running on the system.
