The Intelligent Operations use case provides proactive monitoring of the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) by using vRealize Operations Manager and vRealize Log Insight from a central place.

The Intelligent Operations Scenarios documentation provides the consumer step-by-step guidance for performing policy, alert and threshold configuration, troubleshooting and resolution across the SDDC based on VMware best practices. Intelligent Operations procedures are based on the use of out of the box dashboards or the creation of custom dashboards to support individual persona needs.

You can use out of box alerts and dashboards to monitor your production environment.

  • Receive alerts for critical performance, out of capacity, hardware failures, misconfigurations and also issues that are identified in logs. You can review critical alerts in various ways to decide which issues to address first, for example group by time, criticality, type of problem, environment, object type etc. You can also forward critical alerts to other teams.

  • Use out of the box and custom dashboards that provide an operational overview on overall operations, capacity, configurations, proactive workload balancing to prevent performance issues, top N and so on.
