If you observe frequent RPO violations, want to learn more about the network usage of vSphere Replication, or check the status of your incoming and outgoing replications, you can view replication statistics for source and target vCenter Server sites.

About this task

Prerequisites

Verify that vSphere Replication is running.

Procedure

  1. In the vSphere Web Client Home view, click vSphere Replication.
  2. On the vSphere Replication Home tab, click Monitor.
  3. Click Reports.

Results

The Reports page displays two types of data, current and historic. Current data appears in the graphs on the left, and historic data is displayed on the right of the Reports page.

Note:

Data is collected in 5 minute intervals and the graphs represent aggregated data for each interval. Therefore, you cannot see the exact moment when a peak value occurred.

Table 1. Types of Data that vSphere Replication Collects

Data Type

Report

Current data

  • Replicated VMs (by VC)

  • Replicated VMs (by Hosts)

Historic data

  • Bytes transferred for all outgoing replications

  • Bytes transferred for a specific outgoing replication

  • RPO violations

  • Replications Count

  • Site connectivity

  • VR server connectivity

What to do next

  • You can use the drop-down menu above the historic data reports to limit the time range of the reports.

  • You can maximize report widgets to zoom in the data.

  • When you maximize the report for transferred bytes, you can use the drop-down menu to filter data by virtual machine. This helps you identify virtual machines that generate the most intense replication traffic in your environment.
