As the system administrator for the data center, you must forecast the requirements to support an increase in workload and over the next month. Forecasting data for capacity risk in vRealize Operations Manager involves creating capacity projects to examine the demand and supply of resources in the virtual infrastructure. Create a project to check the impact of future capacity needs in your environment.

Because a project is supposition about how capacity and load change if certain conditions are changed, you don't have to make actual changes to your virtual infrastructure. If you implement the project, you know in advance what your capacity requirements are.

At least two to three weeks of data collection by vRealize Operations Manager.

In vRealize Operations Manager, verify that the Projects tab is open.
