VMware VMTN Doc 9279: Interpreting ESXTOP Statistics

I keep meaning to post a link to this document that Zpan created.  It has great deal of information about how to gather performance statistics with ESXTOP batch mode and then use tools such as Windows PERFMON to review them and how to interpret what you are seeing.

Great document to keep handy, personally I use the Physical Disk counters often and refer to this document when doing so.

Read the document here.

*Update* Scott Drummonds of vPivot.com posted on ESXPlot, a great tool that is far more efficient and less aggravating than Perfmon for working with ESXTOP output files.  Sorry, I forgot to update this post for so long, I will be sure to create a new post just for this great new tool.
