Metric definitions provide an overview of how the metric value is calculated or derived. If you understand the metric, you can better tune vRealize Operations to display results that help you to manage your environment.

vRealize Operations collects data from objects in your environment. Each piece of data collected is called a metric observation or value. vRealize Operations uses the VMware vCenter adapter to collect raw metrics. vRealize Operations uses the vRealize Operations adapter to collect self-monitoring metrics. In addition to the metrics it collects, vRealize Operations calculates capacity metrics, badge metrics, and metrics to monitor the health of your system.

All metric definitions are provided. The metrics reported on your system depend on the objects in your environment. You can use metrics to help troubleshoot problems. See Troubleshooting with the All Metrics Tab.
