Resource maps enable you to view the relationships among hosts, clusters, and virtual machines. You can view a resource map for an entire vCenter Server system or for a specific object, such as a datacenter or cluster. Maps for specific objects show only the object relationships for that object.


  1. Display the object in the inventory.
  2. Select the object and click the Maps tab.
    For example, to display the resource map for your entire vCenter Server system, select the vCenter Server in the inventory panel. To display the resource map for a host, select the host in the inventory panel.
