The analytics cluster of the vRealize Operations Manager deployment contains the nodes that analyze and store data from the monitored components. You deploy a configuration of the analytics cluster that satisfies the requirements for monitoring the number of virtual machines in the design objectives of this validated design.
Deploy a 1-node vRealize Operations Manager analytics cluster on an application virtual network. The analytics cluster consists of one primary node with high availability disabled. The 1-node vRealize Operations Manager analytics cluster is still protected by vSphere HA. You save the overhead of using the additional application-based high availability.
|Decision ID||Design Decision||Design Justification||Design Implication|
|CSDDC-OPS-MON-001||Deploy a one-node vRealize Operations Manager analytics cluster.||Provides the initial scale capacity that is required for monitoring up to 500 VMs.||None.|
|CSDDC-OPS-MON-002||Deploy one remote collector node.||Removes the load from the analytics cluster from collecting metrics from applications.||You must assign a collector group when configuring the monitoring of a solution.|
