The Management Pack for vRealize Hyperic can use either autodiscovery or manual discovery to create resources in vRealize Operations Manager.

When you enable autodiscovery, the management pack discovers Hyperic platforms, servers, and services.

The management pack creates vRealize Operations Manager resources for vRealize Operations Manager platforms and servers. The Management Pack for vRealize Hyperic also creates vRealize Operations Manager resources for certain third party products, such as Microsoft SQL. vRealize Hyperic services appear as metric groups under a vRealize Operations Manager platform or server, depending on the object to which the service belongs.

You can modify properties in the hyperic.properties file to model some or all vRealize Hyperic services as vRealize Operations Manager resources instead of metric groups.

If you disable autodiscovery, you must use manual discovery to selectively create vRealize Operations Manager resources for Hyperic objects.

You enable autodiscovery or manual discovery when you add an adapter instance for the Management Pack for vRealize Hyperic. Autodiscovery is enabled by default.
