vRealize Network Insight Cloud collects many metrics for NSX Advanced Load Balancer, including controller metrics, pool metrics, pool member metrics, service engine metrics, and virtual service metrics.

Controller Metrics

Metric Name Metric API Name Description
CPU Usage Rate (%) cpu.usage.rate.average.percent

Average percentage of the CPU used out of its total capacity.

Note:

This metric provides the host's view of the CPU usage and not the guest operating system view.

It is the average CPU utilization over all available virtual CPUs in the virtual machine.

Disk Usage Rate disk.used.absolute.latest.percent Average percentage of the disk used out of its total capacity.
Memory Usage Rate mem.usage.absolute.average.percent Average percentage of the memory used out of the total configured memory.

Health Score nsxalb.healthScore.absolute.latest.number The score indicating the health of the pool.
Lossy Connections nsxalb.lossyConnections.delta.summation.number Number of lossy connections during the time interval between the service engine and the server.
Network Packet Count net.packetsTotal.delta.summation.number Total number of received and transmitted packets processed by this pool during the time interval.
Network Rx Rate (kbps) net.received.rate.average.kiloBitsPerSecond Average rate of received packets processed by this pool during the time interval.
Network Traffic Rate (kbps) net.usage.rate.average.kiloBitsPerSecond Average rate of received and transmitted packets processed by this pool during the time interval.
Network Tx Rate (kbps) net.transmitted.rate.average.kiloBitsPerSecond Average rate of transmitted packets processed by this pool during the time interval.
Rx Packets net.packetsRx.delta.summation.number Total number of received packets processed by this pool during the time interval.
Server Responses nsxalb.l7ServerResponse.delta.summation.number Total number of server HTTP responses handled by the pool during the time interval.
Tx Packets net.packetsTx.delta.summation.number Total number of transmitted packets processed by this pool during the time interval.

Service Engine Metrics

Metric Name Metric API Name Description
CPU Usage Rate (%) cpu.usage.rate.average.percent Average percentage of the CPU used out of its total capacity.
Note:

This metric provides the host's view of the CPU usage and not the guest operating system view.

It is the average CPU utilization over all available virtual CPUs in the virtual machine.

Dropped Rx Packets net.droppedRx.delta.summation.number

Average number of received packets in NSX Advanced Load Balancer virtual services and NSX Advanced Load Balancer non-virtual services dropped during the selected duration.

Health Score nsxalb.healthScore.absolute.latest.number The score indicating the health of the service engine.
Memory Usage Rate (%) mem.usage.absolute.average.percent Average percentage of the memory used out of the total configured memory.
Network Packet Count net.packetsTotal.delta.summation.number Total number of received and transmitted packets processed by all the vNICs of the service engine (VM) during the selected duration.
Network Rx Rate (kbps) net.received.rate.average.kiloBitsPerSecond Average rate of received packets across all the VNICs of the service engine.
Network Traffic Rate (kbps) net.usage.rate.average.kiloBytesPerSecond Average rate of received and transmitted packets across all the VNICs of the service engine.
Network Tx Rate (kbps) net.transmitted.rate.average.kiloBitsPerSecond Average rate of transmitted packets across all the VNICs of the service engine.
Network Tx Rate (kbps) net.transmitted.rate.average.kiloBytesPerSecond Average rate of transmitted packets across all the VNICs of the service engine.
Rx Packets net.packetsRx.delta.summation.number Number of packets received by all the vNICs of the service engine (VM) during the selected duration.
Session Count net.connection.delta.summation.number

Number of connections to the service engine during the time interval.

The number of connections include the dropped connections and the connections lost due to policy drops.

Tx Packets net.packetsTx.delta.summation.number Number of packets transmitted by all the vNICs of the service engine during the selected duration.

Virtual Service Metrics

Metric Name Metric API Name Description
Client Responses nsxalb.l7ClientResponses.delta.summation.number Number of HTTP responses sent to clients during the time interval.
Current Connections net.lbVirtSvrCurrentConnections.absolute.latest.number Number of connections completed during the time interval.
