You can select the attribute type to include in your policy so that vRealize Operations Manager can collect data from the objects in your environment. Attribute types include metrics, properties, and super metrics. You enable or disable each metric, and determine whether to inherit the metrics from base policies that you selected in the workspace.
How the Collect Metrics and Properties Workspace Works
When you create or customize a policy, you can override the base policy settings to have vRealize Operations Manager collect the data that you intend to use to generate alerts, and report the results in the dashboards.
To define the metric and super metric symptoms, metric event symptoms, and property symptoms, in the menu, click Alerts and then in the left pane click .
Where You Override the Policy Attributes
To override the attributes and properties settings for your policy, in the menu, click Administration, and then in the left pane click Policies. Click the Policy Library tab, and 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, on the left click Collect Metrics and Properties. The attributes and properties settings for the selected object types appear in the workspace.

The KPI determines whether the metric, property, or super metric attribute is considered to be a key performance indicator (KPI) when vRealize Operations Manager reports the collected data in the dashboards. Filter the KPI states to display attributes with KPI enabled, disabled, or inherited for the policy.
