    The Host Trends report shows historical information about resource consumption trends for virtualization hosts by summarizing the performance metrics for different hosts over time. Using AI and machine learning, it can also provide predictive data on future usage.

    Use this report to answer questions such as:

    • What was the average CPU utilization in the vSphere cluster this morning?
    • What was the peak I/O utilization of HOST05 yesterday?
    • Which VM was accountable for irregular RAM consumption on one of the hosts?
