Overview

CPU load chart may display a different load in Orion than what VMAN shows.

Environment

All VMAN versions

Detail

This is because Orion may be polling the CPU data via SNMP or WMI, which matches what you would see in task manager on the VM.

VMAN gets its CPU data straight from vcenter which will show only what that vm is using. Not whether or not the esx host is borrowing resources for another VM.
