Virtual Center Perf Chart service encountered an internal error

January 19th, 2010 No comments

On a Virtual Center 4 update 1 installation I noticed an Perf Charts service error on the performance overview tab. The advanced performance tab is functioning as normal.

There are 3 VMware KBs related to this type of error:

Unfortunately none of these solved my problem.

In virtual center U1 the configuration of the performance charts database has changed location. It’s now located in C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\tomcat\conf\Catalina\localhost\statsreport.xml.

VMware updated the KB article (KB1013877) in the mean time to reflect the changes in Update 1.

The purpose of these gatherings is to provide a forum in which VMware users can share best practices and expertise, and VMware can in turn obtain feedback from the user community.

VMware User Groups are made up of independent communities of VMware users who get together to exchange ideas and information. There are many benefits to participating in a VMware User Group:

– Learn best practices and optimal use of VMware products
– Get answers, advice, tips, and suggestions from experts
– Discover new ideas and gain insight about Virtual Infrastructure
– Receive special information about new VMware products
– Network with other technical professionals in your area
– Be part of the leading edge of VMware users

We look forward to meet with you on the next VMUG meeting in Belgium.
