Question:
What is the metric needed to measure when a guest migrates? 

From the vmware Metrics, it appears that one of the following could be used, but these are integer values and will most likely not work for this requirement: Num Storage VMotions, Num VMotions
Environment:
UIM 8.51
vmware 6.87
Answer:
Unfortunately, the Total Time Metric will not perform this functionality.
The vMotion metrics do not have much data except one metric for how many vMotions were performed in a CLUSTER. Apart from that, there is only "vMotion Storage".
