vSAN Monitoring and Troubleshooting describes how to monitor and troubleshoot VMware vSAN® by using the vSphere Client, esxcli and RVC commands, and other tools.

At VMware, we value inclusion. To foster this principle within our customer, partner, and internal community, we are replacing some of the terminology in our content. We have updated this guide to remove instances of non-inclusive language.
