vSphere counters are more complex than physical machine counters because there are many components as well as inconsistencies that are caused by virtualization. When virtualized, the 4 elements of infrastructure (CPU, RAM, Disk, Network) behave differently.
The complexity created by a new layer because it impacts the adjacent layers below and above it. So the net effect you need to learn three layers. That’s why from a monitoring and troubleshooting viewpoint, container technology requires a deeper knowledge as the boundary is even less strict. Think of all the problems you have with vSphere Resource Pool performance troubleshooting, and now make it granular at process level!
