The health rating gives you an overview of the current operational state of an inventory object.

The Health badge answers the question "How is my system doing right now?" Health identifies the current problems in the system or issues that need to be resolved immediately to avoid problems. Therefore, health is the first high-level indicator that you should look at to see if your system needs immediate attention. The Health badge breaks down into several sub-badges: Workload, Anomalies, and Faults.

vRealize Operations Manager calculates the Health score by using the scores of the sub-badges that the Health badge contains. Faults are given precedence in the Health score because they describe existing problems, while Workload and Anomalies are combined to identify performance problems. This approach ensures that the score of the Health badge reflects the actual state of the object, without exaggerating or underestimating problems.

The Health score ranges between 0 (bad) and 100 (good). The badge changes its color based on the badge score thresholds that are set by the vRealize Operations Manager administrator.
