The Container Details widget displays graphs that show a summary of child objects, metrics, and alerts of an object in the inventory. A vRealize Operations Manager administrator can use this widget to determine how an object is affected when objects that contains experience problems.

The Container Details widget treats objects from the inventory as containers and objects. Containers are objects that contain other objects. The widget lists the containers and shows the number of containers, objects, metrics, and alerts of the observed object. The widget also displays the alerts of each container and an icon links to its child objects. For example, if you select from the inventory a host that contains two VMs and one common datastore for the VMs, the Container Details widget displays summary information with three containers, two objects, and the number of alerts and metrics for the host. The widget also lists each of the three objects, with the number of alerts for each object. Clicking an object in the graph takes you to the object details page. When you point to the icon next to the object, a tool tip shows the name of the related resource and its health. For example, when you point to the icon next to a VM, the tool tip shows a related datastore and its health. Clicking the icon takes you to the object detail page of the related object, which is the datastore following the example.

The widget might be included on any of your custom dashboards. In the left pane, click Home to see your configured dashboards.
