Does Turbonomic gain insight from vCenter by using VMware Tools WMI Performance settings?

VMware tools, once installed on a VM, has the option to enable (which is a default setting) WMI Performance Logging which gathers data from the VM. I was informed that this can safely be disabled because Turbonomic gathers it's data from vCenter. However, I am trying to find some confirmation on whether or not the info vCenter provides is actually gathered from the WMI Performance Logging feature or not.


My concern is that if I disable this feature from all of my VMs then vCenter might not be able to provide relevant data to Turbonomic.


Worth noting, the reason for wanting to disable this is due to a large number of application logs being generated.
