Suppose that you are trying to investigate the reason for slow performance in the environment. You can select key objects such as host systems to see if any related objects such as virtual machines indicate problems.
- In the menu, click Environment, then click vSphere Hosts and Clusters in the left pane and select the vSphere World object.
- Select the Environment tab.
The system displays health badges for all objects in the vSphere World.
- Click each of the host system badges.
The health badge of the virtual machines that belong to the host are highlighted. A host that displays a good health badge, may have virtual machines that display a warning status.
What to do next
Now you can investigate the reason for the problem. For example, once it is determined whether the problem is chronic or temporary, you can decide how to address it. See Using Troubleshooting Tools to Resolve Problems.
