You configure the content in vRealize Operations Manager to suit your information needs, using views, reports, dashboards, and widgets.
Views display data, based on an object type. You can select from various view types to see your data from a different perspective. Views are reusable components that you can include in reports and dashboards. Reports can contain predefined or custom views and dashboards in a specified order. You build the reports to represent objects and metrics in your environment. You can customize the report layout by adding a cover page, a table of contents, and a footer. You can export the report in a PDF or CSV file format for further reference.
You use dashboards to monitor the performance and state of objects in your virtual infrastructure. Widgets are the building blocks of dashboards and display data about configured attributes, resources, аpplications, or the overall processes in your environment. You can also incorporate views in dashboards using the vRealize Operations View Widget.
