Plugin Manager, available on the Server Settings section of the Administration tab, is a user interface for deployment-wide management of product plugins.

You can use the Plugin Manager to administer plugins on the vCenter Hyperic server and on all up-to-date agents that report to the server.

Plugin Manager displays all plugins deployed to the server, and the status of each plugin on agents reporting to the server.

You can use Plugin Manager to upload new plugins, update existing plugins, and remove plugins. The changes you make are replicated on all up-to-date agents that report to the server. Note that plugins you upload must comply with plugin naming conventions, and may not be larger than 5 MB.

When you remove one or more plugins using Plugin Manager, all resources in inventory of types managed by the plugin are removed from inventory.
