For supported resource types, you can configure vCenter Hyperic to track changes made to configuration files (or other local files of interest) and log events for the associated resource. Configuration tracking is supported for most platform and server types; typically not for services.

Configuration tracking functionality for server types varies by resource type, plugins that have been updated to use the event-based tracking added in vCenter Hyperic 4.6.5 track more information about file changes than those that still use the still-supported polling-based tracking.

The plugins that are updated to use event-based tracking are listed in Set Up Event-Based Configuration Tracking for a Server. Follow the instructions in that section for those server types. For other server types, and for platform and service types that support configuration tracking see Set Up Polling-Based Configuration Tracking.
