When you create a VMware VSAN cluster, the performance service is disabled. Turn on vSAN performance service to monitor the performance of vSAN clusters, hosts, disks, and VMs. When you turn on the performance service, vSAN places a Stats database object in the datastore to collect statistical data. The Stats database is a namespace object in the cluster's vSAN datastore.
