The Management Pack for VMware Cloud Director can import events for VMware Cloud Director entities that have the System organization and the Provider vDC, Organization, Organization vDC, or vApp entity type. These events appear as change events in the user interface.
The PROCESS_EVENTS property in the instance-level properties file determines whether the Management Pack for VMware Cloud Director processes events.
The Management Pack for VMware Cloud Director uses the value of the LAST_EVENT_TIME property in the vcloud_<instance_id>.properties file to filter out events that are already processed. During the first collection cycle, vRealize Operations Manager sets the LAST_EVENT_TIME property to the current time minus the value of the MIN_BACK_INTIME_FOR_FIRST_EVENT_PROCESSING property. The MIN_BACK_INTIME_FOR_FIRST_EVENT_PROCESSING property is in the adapter-level properties file and its default value is 60 minutes.
The Management Pack for VMware Cloud Director uses a acceptlist file, called events_white_list.txt, to apply additional filtering to events that it retrieves from VMware Cloud Director . The Management Pack for VMware Cloud Director filters events based on the acceptlist before it imports the events into vRealize Operations Manager. You can modify the events in the acceptlist file.
