When monitoring is enabled, vRealize Automation Cloud retrieves vRealize Operations Cloud metrics about your deployments.

To access monitoring, click a deployment and select the Monitor tab.

To see metrics, expand the component tree on the left, and highlight a virtual machine.

  • Metrics are not cached. They come directly from vRealize Operations Cloud and might take a few moments to load.
  • Only virtual machine metrics appear. Metrics from other components such as vCloud Director, Software, or XaaS are not supported.
  • Only vSphere virtual machine metrics appear. Other cloud providers such as AWS or Azure are not supported.

Metrics appear as timeline graphs that show highs and lows for the following measures.

  • CPU
  • Memory
  • Storage IOPS
  • Network MBPS

To reveal the specific metric name, click the blue information icon at the upper left corner of the timeline.
