Monitoring a Guest Introspection instance involves checking for status coming from the Guest Introspection components: the security virtual machine (SVM), the ESXi host-resident Guest Introspection module, and the protected virtual machine-resident thin agent.


  1. In the vSphere Web Client, click vCenter Inventory Lists, and then click Datacenters.
  2. In the Name column, click a data center.
  3. Click Monitor and then click Guest Introspection.
    The Guest Introspection Health and Alarms page displays the health of the objects under the data center you selected, and the active alarms. Health status changes are reflected within a minute of the actual occurrence of the event that triggered the change.
