vSphere5 ESXTOP Metric Thresholds

I have been looking arround the internet over the last few weeks to find an article that could show me which metrics in ESXTOP I should be monitoring and what the max thresholds per metric should be. I found several articles saying what to monitor but none that would say what thresholds they should not breach. That was until I was browsing the VMware forums and came across this article over at

I recommend printing it out in A3 or maybe putting it as your desktop background :-).
