This chart displays the normalized latency in microseconds on the datastore. Storage I/O Control monitors latency to detect congestion on the datastore. This metric computes a weighted response time across all hosts and VMs accessing the datastore. I/O count is used as the weight for the response time. It captures the device level latency and does not include any queuing inside the hypervisor storage stack or inside the VM. It is adjusted for the I/O size. High latencies that are the result of large I/Os are discounted so as not to make the datastore seem slower than it really is. Data for all virtual machines is combined. This chart displays zero values when Storage I/O Control is disabled.
This chart is located in the Performance view of the datastore Performance tab. The sizeNormalizedDatastoreLatency counter can also be displayed for datastore cluster charts.
