Metrics in Prism

Hello -

Prism UI shows metrics for the cluster, hosts, VMs, hardware, ie: IOPs, latency, etc.

Are these metrics reported by the hypervisor to Prism/Nutanix or are they reported by some engine running within the CVM/s?

Thanks.

Arithmos/Statscollector is the Stats engine that reports most of the metrics on Prism.

Adding to CB's post, Hypervisor related information is retrieved using Hyperint component running in Nutanix CVM.

Arithmos stores the information, it receives from Hyperint and Prism uses information stores in Arithmos to display information in Prism GUI.

Hope it helps.
