vRealize Operations Manager collects configuration, runtime, CPU, memory, network I/O, and properties about summary use for virtual machine objects. Properties are collected with the first cycle of data collection. Once collected, the next property collection occurs only when there is data change. In case of no data change, no property is collected.
