The vSphere Snapshot Collector and vSphere Perf Collector, both based on the VMware vSphere 5.1 Web Services API, retrieve data from VMware vCenter servers and ESX hosts. They are intended to be used together to pair snapshot data with historical performance data, or perf data. You can collect snapshot data at any frequency (Cloud Cruiser recommends hourly) for the current day and then merge it with related perf data in a daily load.

For an understanding of the vSphere Web Services API, see the VMware vSphere API Reference Documentation.
