Applications are groups of related objects in your environment that mimic an application in your business. Use the summary to track the health of objects in the application and help troubleshoot performance issues.

In vRealize Operations Manager, each application contains one or more tiers and each tier contains one or more objects. The tier is a convenient way to organize objects that perform a specific task in an application. For example, you can group all of your database servers together in a tier.

The objects in a tier are static. If the set of objects in a tier changes, you must manually edit the application.

Construct an application to view a particular segment of your business. The application shows how the performance of one object affects other objects in the same application, and helps you to locate the source of a problem. For example, if you have an application that includes all the database, Web, and network servers that process sales data for your business, you see a yellow, orange, or red status if the application health is degrading. Starting with the application summary dashboard, you can investigate which server is causing or exhibiting the problem.

In the menu, click Environment, then click the Applications tab.
