Use the Workload Optimization UI pages to monitor optimizing moves in a fully automated system. If your system is not fully automated, you can use the UI to conduct research and run actions directly.

vRealize Operations monitors virtual objects and collects and analyzes related data that is presented to you in graphical form at the Workload Optimization screen. Depending on what appears on the screen, you might use optimization functions to distribute a workload differently in a data center or custom data center. Or you may decide to perform more research, including checking the Alerts page to determine if any 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 examples demonstrate the primary ways you can use Workload Optimization to keep your data centers balanced and performing their best.
