vRealize Operations Manager collects data for all objects in your environment. You can compare the status of an object with the status of all related objects to determine the possible cause for a problem in your environment.

How the Environment Objects Overview Works

When you select an object in your inventory, vRealize Operations Manager highlights badges for the object and all its related objects. Point to a badge to display current key conditions for an object. See Analyzing the Resources in Your Environment.

Where You Find the Environment Objects Overview
