The Server Manager discovers and monitors various vCloud Director components via REST API .
The Server Manager imports initial topology from the IP Availability Manager. After the topology is imported, Server Manager discovers domain-specific entities related to the features and creates additional topology objects for those features.
As a first step of discovery, vCD (vCloud Director) is discovered based on ICMP discovery. On discovery of vCloud Director (Host) in SMARTS-IP domain manager, SMARTS ESM server imports the Host from IP Domain Manager and further does a complete discovery of vCloud Director topology.
vCloud Director(vCD) Discovered Components are:
- Cloud Controller
- Organization (Tenant)
- Organization vDC
- Provider vDC
- vApp (Virtual Appliance)
