Use the Workload Balance UI to monitor rebalancing moves in a fully automated system. If your system is not fully automated, you can use the UI to conduct research and execute actions directly.

vRealize Operations Manager monitors virtual objects and collects and analyzes related data that is presented to you in graphical form at the Workload Balance screen, which is listed in the left pane on the Home screen. Depending on what appears on the screen, you may determine that you need to use rebalancing functions to distribute workload more evenly in a data center or custom data center. Or you may decide to perform more research, including checking the Alerts page to identify if any active alerts have been generated for objects of interest.

For comprehensive general instructions on responding to alerts and analyzing problems related to objects in your environment, see Monitoring Objects in Your Managed Environment by Using vRealize Operations Manager.

The following user scenarios provide examples of the primary ways you can use Workload Balance to keep your data centers balanced and performing at optimum.
