vRealize Operations Manager communicates with the management components of the SDDC to collect metrics which are presented through a number of dashboards and views.
In the consolidated SDDC, you deploy a vRealize Operations Manager configuration that consists of the following entities.
1-node (medium-size) vRealize Operations Manager analytics cluster. This topology provides the ability to add high availability, scale-out capacity up to sixteen nodes, and failover.
1 standard remote collector node. The remote collectors communicate directly with the vRealize Operations Manager analytics cluster. The design uses remote collectors whose role is to ease scalability by performing the data collection for localized applications and periodically sending collected data to the analytics cluster.
The vRealize Operations Manager nodes run on the consolidated pod. For information about the types of pods, see Pod Types for Consolidated SDDC.
