Most objects in an environment are related to other objects in that environment. The Environment tab shows how objects in your environment are related. You use this display to troubleshoot problems that might not be about the object that you originally chose to examine. For example, a problem alert on a host might be because a virtual machine related to the host lacks capacity.
When you select an object from the inventory of your environment and display the Object Details screen, you can display an overview of the related objects by clicking the Environment tab. The tab shows all the objects in your environment that are related to the selected object, with a status badge for each object. Use the Environment tab to identify related objects in your environment with health, risk, or efficiency problems.
