The collection status page provides an overview of the data that is being collected at the cluster level in vRealize Operations. You can view the details for each collector and you can also view the adapter instance within the collector. The collection status page also provides recommendations in case of any issues caused by the collection mechanism.
The collection status page summarises the number of objects and metrics that are getting collected by the vRealize Operations collectors and adapter instances. You can view the status of each collector and adapter instance and find issues, if any. If there are anomalies, the collection status page provides recommendations to resolve those issues.
- To view your collection status, from the left menu, click Administration, and then click the Collection Status tile.
Table 1. Collection Status Overview Options Option Description Overview You can view the overall number of objects and metrics that is collected by your cluster. The charts underneath the numbers represent the graphical view of the collected data. Hover over the charts to view their values. Collectors You can view the total number of collectors, including data and remote collectors in your cluster. If any of the collectors stop working, it is reported here. Adapter Instances You can view the total number of adapter instances that are receiving data. If any of the adapter instances do not receive data, it is reported here.
- (Optional) Click the Show Issues Only check box to filter collectors and adapter instances that have issues.
- By default, the collection cycle is displayed in the Topology structure. Using the topology view, you can clearly view the flow of data from the adapter instances to the collectors, and from the collectors into the cluster.
Alternatively, you can click the List View icon to view the collection cycle in a tabular structure.
Table 2. Collection Status Topology View Option Description Cluster The vRealize Operations cluster collects data using its collectors. Hover over the cluster to view the name and type of the cluster. Collectors All the collectors that are part of a cluster are listed. You can view the number of objects and metrics being collected. Hover over the collector to view the name and type of the collector.
Click the Expand icon to view the adapter instances.
Adapter Instances All the adapter instances that are part of a collector are listed. You can view the number of objects and metrics that are being collected. Hover over the adapter instance to view the name and type of the adapter.
- The collection status of each of the instances are colour coded.
Table 3. Collection Status of Adapter Instances Colour Status Description Green Collecting. Resource is receiving data. Grey Stopped Resource manually stopped by user. Yellow Warning Resource is receiving data but has a problem. You can view the warning message and recommendation on how to resolve it. Red Failed Resource fails to collect data due to some problem.
- Click the collector to view the details.
Option Description Details Name Name of the collector. IP Address Internet protocol (IP) address of the collector. Status Status of the collector.Note: If any of the adapter instances within the collector has an anomaly, the status will reflect as warning. Uptime Total time elapsed since the collector started receiving data. Creation Date The day the collector was created. Last HeartBeat The last heart beat from the collector in the defined interval. Version The version of the collector. Adapters Total number of adapter instances in the collector. Performance Details CPU The average percentage of CPU used by the collector. Memory The percentage of memory used by the collector. Data Collection Details Objects Number of objects collected. Metrics Number of metrics collected. Started Adapters Number of adapter instances receiving data. Threads Number of threads collector service that is being used.
