Enterprise resources and virtual datacenter resources

This panel shows statistics of the resources used by an enterprise in all accessible datacenters, or the selected virtual datacenter. It also displays soft limits and hard limits when used. The display will depend on the user's scope and privileges. If the user does not have the privileges to display enterprise statistics and limits, only the virtual datacenter statistics will be available. 

Privilege: Display enterprise statistics, Display enterprise limits in statistics

By default, the statistics are updated at the interval set with the "Refresh interval for dashboard" parameter at Configuration View#Dashboard.

Virtual CPUs

These disks will be deleted when the VM is undeployed. Gigabytes of disks created on datastores.

MemoryGigabytes of RAM used by VMs that are currently deployed
Ext. StorageVolumes of storage created on integrated/managed iSCSI or NFS, or generic iSCSI storage devices.
This includes volumes of persistent external storage and persistent VM system disks. Gigabytes of volumes created in VDCs.
