All VM data displays through VMAN into the <variable name="Core.WebConsole"/> in a set of dashboards including the Virtualization Summary, Sprawl dashboard, VM specific dashboards, and more. These examples show how to drill-down and manage VM resources in details pages. Each page displays specific resources and options for clusters, hosts, datastores, networks, and virtual machines.

You do not need to add all VMs as monitored nodes in the <variable name="Core.ProductName_Long">. VMAN collects and displays data for all VMs in your environment.</variable>

Use the Virtualization Summary as a stepping off point to review monitored VMs, manage resources, and respond to recommendations and alerts.

Getting Started resource Provides immediate options to integrate and configure recommendations. You can remove this resource anytime after getting started to reuse the space.
Virtualization Assets and Asset Summary Expand to select VMs within your environment. The virtual environment includes virtual centers (VMware), clusters, hosts, datastores, networks, and VMs. The Asset Summary provides an overall breakdown information of VMs per VMware and Hyper-V.
Recommendations resource Lists all active and predictive recommendations listed per VM host or cluster. Select the recommendations link to troubleshoot all recommendations.
All Active Virtualization Alerts resource Lists all active alerts triggered per VMwith a detailed message and triggering resource. Select alerts to review details and troubleshoot the issue.

Expand Virtualization Assets to drill-down into your VM environment. Selecting a VM at any level opens a details page displaying status resources, management tools, alerts, and recommendations. For example, selecting a VMware virtual center provides a details page with an expandable virtualization assets view, an AppStack view, alerts, and supported management tools.

This example displays a VM within a host. Selecting the VM opens a details page with specific resource usage data. The Resource Utilization resource provides key data over time for your VMs. Moving your mouse across the line graphs displays a tooltip with percentages for CPU, memory, network upsage, IOPs, and latency.
