VMware Metric missing cpu.usage_average


I am trying to collect the cpu.usage_average metric from VMware VMs, but I check and this metric is not being collected.
This metric is only available for hosts, not VMs on my environment.
Could this be versioning issues? I am using InfluxDB v2.5.1


  • What version of telegraf are you using?
  • What does your config look like?
  • How long has telegraf run for? If not very long, please see this bug post

Sorry for the delay in answering.

I solved the problem, it was just the missing metric in the config file.
