The Network Objects and Their Failures section in the VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager Reference Guide identifies the topology objects discovered and the events notified by the IP Performance Manager.

Console operations are controlled by certain console operation options such as Notification Properties, Expand Map Node, and Show Containment. The VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager Configuration Guide provides instructions on changing the console operations.

IP Performance Manager also instantiates device connection, collection, management agent, and redundancy group object types, but because IP Performance Manager does no analysis for these object types, they are not discussed here. The VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager Reference Guide describes all of the object types instantiated by IP Performance Manager.

All of the object types instantiated by IP Performance Manager are available to a Global Console attached to IP Performance Manager, and a subset are available to a Global Console attached to the Global Manager. The VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager Reference Guide provides a list of the object types imported by the Global Manager.
