New vMotion Performance Counter in vSphere 8:

In vSphere 8, there is a new performance counter called “vMotion Latency” that provides information about the latency of vMotion operations. vMotion is a feature of VMware vSphere that allows administrators to move running VMs from one host to another without interruption.

The vMotion Latency counter is available in the vSphere Performance Manager and can be used to monitor the latency of vMotion operations in real time. It provides the time taken for the vMotion operation to complete, measured in milliseconds.

This new performance counter allows administrators to monitor the performance of vMotion operations and identify any potential issues that may be impacting the migration time of VMs. High vMotion Latency could indicate a problem with the network or storage infrastructure, or a lack of resources on the destination host.

To access vMotion Latency counter in vSphere 8, you can use the vSphere Performance Manager, it’s available in the “Host” section under the “vMotion” subcategory. You can also use the vSphere CLI, vSphere SDK or vSphere API to access the vMotion Latency counter programmatically.

It is important to keep an eye on this new performance counter, and consult the VMware documentation for more information on vMotion Latency and how to troubleshoot issues that may arise. Additionally, monitoring this counter can help you to optimize vMotion performance, and ensure your vSphere environment is running efficiently.
