Some objects might continue to appear on the dashboards even after agents have stopped collecting data about them. You can set a time after which such objects will be cleaned up.


  1. Open the /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/V4V_adapter3/conf/ file on the vRealize Operations Manager master node.
  2. Modify the value of parameters whose cleanup time you want to change.
    The value is given in days. Enter a floating-point number for a period of time less than one day. For example, 0.5 is twelve hours and 0.0417 is one hour. An empty value indicates that the object is never cleaned up.
    Parameter Default Value Description
    timeToExpire.VirtualMachine 30 Virtual machines
    timeToExpire.UserDesktop 30 VDI sessions

  4. In the menu, click the Administration tab and in the left pane click Solutions.
