The Time remaining element is a measure of the amount of time left before your objects run out of capacity.

How the Time Remaining Element Works

The Time Remaining element determines how vRealize Operations Manager reports on the available time until capacity runs out for a specific object type group.

  • The time remaining indicates the amount of time that remains before the object group consumes the capacity available. vRealize Operations Manager calculates the time remaining as the number of days remaining until all the capacity is consumed.

  • To keep the Time Remaining more than the critical threshold setting or to keep it green, your objects must have more days of capacity available.

Where You Override the Policy Time Remaining Element

To view and override the policy Time Remaining analysis setting, in the menu, click Administration, and then in the left pane click Policies. Click the Policy Library tab. Click the Add New Policy icon to add a policy or click the Edit Selected Policy icon to edit a policy. In the Add or Edit Monitoring policy workspace, click Analysis Settings, then select one or more objects in the left pane. The time remaining settings for the object types that you selected in the workspace appear in the right pane.

View the Time Remaining policy element and configure the settings for your policy.

If you do not configure the policy element, your policy inherits the settings from the selected base policy.
