vRealize Operations Manager calculates the Time Remaining score as a percentage of time that is remaining for each compute resource compared to the provisioning buffer you set in the Configuration dialog box. By default, the Time Remaining score provisioning buffer is 30 days. If even one of the compute resources has less capacity than the provisioned buffer, the Time Remaining score is 0.

For example, if the provisioning buffer is set to 30 days, and the object that you selected has CPU resources for 81 days, memory resources for 5 days, disk I/O resources for 200 days, and network I/O resources for more than one year, the Time Remaining score is 0, because one of the resources has capacity for less than 30 days.

The Time Remaining score ranges between 0 (bad) and 100 (good). The badge score thresholds can by modified by the vRealize Operations Manager administrator.

See Managing and Administering Policies for vRealize Operations Manager to configure symptom thresholds for the Time Remaining badge score.
