VMware Aria Operations Badge Workload
Last time we discussed Aria Operations Badge Health, this time we'll define the Workload Badge. I personally think of Workload as how hard an object is working, but let's define it.
It depends on the Object Type, but generally the Badge Workload will be the worst of your CPU Workload, Memory Workload, or Disk Space Workload metrics (0-100, 100 is bad). For vSphere Datastore and Datastore Clusters the Badge Workload represents the worst of the Disk Space Workload metrics. Let's start with a VM.
Here you can see the Badge Workload is 70.265 which represents the worst of CPU Workload (8.24), Memory Workload (70.265), and Disk Space Workload (49.89). Generally, Workload metrics are defined as Demand / Usable Capacity. A VM with CPU Workload of 100 means all CPU Usable Capacity is being demanded.
Let's look at an ESXi Host.
The Badge Workload is 61.94, which represents the worst of CPU Workload (17.52), Memory Workload (61.94), and Disk Space Workload (0). An ESXi Host with Memory Workload of 100 means all Memory Usable Capacity is being demanded.
Let's look at a Cluster.
Badge Workload here is 68.68, the worst of the three Workload metrics. The same holds true for the vSphere Datacenter and vCenter Object Types. For Datastore and Datastore Cluster object types, Badge Workload is Disk Space Workload.
