Performance Overview is an optional plug-in available with VirtualCenter 2.5 Update 4.

Prior to installing the Performance Overview plug-in, perform the following steps:

  1. Copy the VirtualCenter 2.5 Update 4 build to the VirtualCenter Server system.
    Note: If the contents of the folders vpx\perfCharts (iso) or bin\perfCharts (ZIP) are not copied to the local drive of the VirtualCenter Server, an Access Denied error appears when the install.bat command is run later in the installation process.
  2. If you are upgrading to VirtualCenter 2.5 Update4, stop the VMware Infrastructure Web Access service before upgrading the VirtualCenter.
  3. Install or ugrade to VirtualCenter 2.5 Update 4 and start the VMware Infrastructure Web Access service.

    1. Right-click My Computer and click Properties.
    2. In the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables.
    3. In the System variable list, select Path and click Edit.
    4. In Variable value, enter C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_11\bin\
      If an older version of JRE is present, run the following command in the command window:
      set path=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_11\bin\;%path%
    5. In the System variable list, select JAVA_HOME and click Edit.
      If JAVA_HOME does not exist, click New and in the Variable name, enter JAVA_HOME.

    6. In Variable value, enter C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_11\bin\

    7. Log out and log back in to the VirtualCenter Server.

To install the Performance Overview plug-in:

  1. In the command window of VirtualCenter Server system, go to the vpx/perfCharts folder, the location where the Performance Overview plug-in is available.
    If you are using the ZIP file, go to the bin\perfCharts folder.
