The Logical Resource Manager (LRM) manages the logical resource state of Cloud Foundation.

LRM Controller

The LRM controller is exported as a logical managed view, which is comprised of the deployed vCenters and resource stats per vCenter.

Examples of logical resource types include the following:

  • VM

  • distributed virtual switch

  • distributed virtual portgroup

  • host system

  • datastore

  • total storage

LRM Logical Resources

LRM builds its logical resource view of Cloud Foundation components by interfacing with vCenter using vSphere APIs.

LRM Services

An example of an LRM service is the LRM alarm service that fetches alarms from vCenter periodically.
