In the vCenter Hyperic user interface, a resource's Inventory Page presents a variety of resource properties and key information about the resource's closest relatives in the resource hierarchy.

The information on the Inventory page varies by both inventory type and resource type, and includes auto-discovered and user-configured resource properties. For a fundamental inventory type — a platform, servee, or service — the Inventory Page contains a Configuration Properties section, where you can view and update the properties that enable or tailor monitoring behaviors for the resource.

Most resource types are automatically discovered, and auto-discovery is the only way an operating system platform can be added to inventory. Conversely, auto-discovery of network or virtual platform types is not possible — you must add such platforms to inventory manually.
