As of VI API 2.5, this property is not used.
The counter IDs associated with the same performance counter name for
the same device type. For example, the rollup types for CPU Usage for
a host are average, minimum, and maximum. Therefore, their counter
IDs are associated.
The group of the performance counter with its label and summary
details. Counter groups include "cpu," "mem," "net," "disk," "system,"
"rescpu," and "clusterServices," for example.
A system-generated number that uniquely identifies the counter in the
context of the system. The performance counter ID.
Minimum level at which metrics of this type will be collected by
VirtualCenter Server. The value for this property for any performance
counter is a number from 1 to 4. The higher the setting, the more data
is collected by VirtualCenter Server. The default setting for
VirtualCenter Server is 1, which collects the minimal amount of
performance data that is typically useful to administrators and
developers alike. The specific level of each counter is documented in
the respective counter-documentation pages, by group. See PerformanceManager for links to the counter group pages.
Since VI API 2.5
The name of the counter with label and summary details. For example,
the counter with name "usage" for the "cpu" group of performance
Minimum level at which the per device metrics of this type will be
collected by vCenter Server. The value for this property for any
performance counter is a number from 1 to 4. By default all per device
metrics are calculated at level 3 or more. If a certain per device
counter is collected at a certain level, the aggregate metric is also
calculated at that level, i.e., perDeviceLevel is greater than or
equal to level.
Since vSphere API 4.1
The counter type. Valid values include average, maximum, minimum,
latest, summation, or none. This determines the type of statistical
values that are returned for the counter. None means that the counter
is never rolled up.
Statistics type for the counter. Valid values include absolute, delta,
The unit for the values of the performance counter with its label and
summary details. See PerformanceManagerUnit for a
description of the valid values.
