Configure the resources that determine the behavior of the objects in your vRealize Operations Manager environment.

Use alert and symptom definitions with actionable recommendations to generate alerts that keep you aware of problems that occur on your objects. Use and customize operational policies to determine how vRealize Operations Manager analyzes your objects and displays information about them, so that you are notified when problems occur on those objects. Use super metrics, which combine metrics into formulas, to collect combinations of data from your objects.

To identify objects and adapter types, customize icons. Add objects, and metadata about them, to manage those objects when an adapter instance does not support the discovery of a particular object type. Configure the global settings, which apply to all users, such as data retention and system timeout.
