Before you can begin using the Management Pack, you must create an adapter instance to identify the host from which the Management Pack will retrieve data.


  1. Log in to vRealize Operations as an admin user.
  2. Click the Administration administration_icon icon. In the right panel, the Solutions view will be displayed.
  3. Select Apache Tomcat from the Solutions list.
  4. Click the Configure configure_icon icon. The Manage Solution window will appear.
    Note: Click the Add add_icon icon above the Instance Namelist on the left to create multiple adapter instances.

  5. In the Manage Solution window, enter the following information:
    1. Adapter Settings:
      • Display Name: A name for this particular instance of the Management Pack
      • Description: Optional, but it can be helpful to describe multiple instances of the Management Pack
    2. Basic Settings:
      • JMX Service URL:Your JMX Service URL should contain your host server's IPv6 web address appended with port 9000 (must be changed from a default of 8080). Some example URLs are listed below:

        Generic Example:

        service:jvm:rmi:///jndi/rmi://<IP or Hostname of server>:<JMX Port>/jmxrmi

        System Example:


        SSL System Example:


      • Credential: Select the credential you created when Creating a Credential (Apache Tomcat).
    3. Advanced Settings:
      • Collector(s)/Groups: The default collector group selection should be fine, but you may choose to select the vRealize Operations Manager Collector - vRealize Cluster node option.
      • Support Autodiscovery: When you enable autodiscovery (default), the Management Pack creates resources and relationships in vROps, then collects data for the discovered resources after the main collection query runs. This should not be set to False.


Note: The collection interval for the adapter instance resource determines how often the Management Pack collects data. The default collection interval is five minutes, but the interval can be changed in the file.
