Performance statistics are displayed with incorrect measurement unit

Table of contents


The performance statistics on the Orion Web Console display incorrect measurement units.


All SAM versions


The performance values are read from the vCenter without a measurement unit. When the value is displayed on the statistics, it is converted into a more easily readable number.
For example, if the value received from the vCenter is 114467, it is displayed as 114K. However, "K" does not signify kilobytes. Instead, it signifies that the original polled value was converted into thousands. This value means that the the value is 114467 in the vCenter units, which is 114 MBs.
