vRealize Operations Manager uses badges to visualize metrics to give you a high level view of the performance and the condition of your virtual environment.

The scores for the analysis badges are computed by the vCenter Server adapter, and others by the vRealize Operations Manager analytics algorithms.

vRealize Operations Manager badges





Icon for normal workload status.

The Workload badge combines metrics that show the demand for resources on an object as a single value. These metrics include CPU utilization, memory usage, and so on.


Icon for normal score of Anomalies.

The Anomalies score is calculated using the total number of threshold violations for all metrics for the selected object and its child objects. A low Anomalies score indicates that an object is behaving according to its established historical parameters.


Icon for normal score of Faults.

The Faults score is calculated based on events published by the vCenter Server. The scores are computed based on the severity of underlying problems. When more than one fault-related problem exists on the resource, the Faults score is based on the most severe problem.


Capacity icon for objects with resources for more than 120 days.

The Capacity badge represents the capability of your virtual environment to accommodate new virtual machines. vRealize Operations Manager calculates the Capacity score as a percentage of the remaining virtual machines count compared to the total number of virtual machines that can be deployed on the selected object.

Time Remaining

Icon for normal time remaining state.

The Time Remaining score indicates how much time is remaining before the resources of the object exhaust. The Time Remaining score allows you to plan the provisioning of physical or virtual resources for the selected object, or reorganising the workload in your virtual environment.


Icon for normal levels of stress.

The Stress score indicates the historic workload of the selected object. The Stress score is calculated as a ratio between the demand for resources and the usable capacity for a certain period.

Reclaimable Capacity

Icon for low Waste score.

The Reclaimable Waste score indicates over-provisioning in your virtual infrastructure or for a specific object. It identifies the amount of resources that can be reclaimed and provisioned to other objects in your environment.


Icon for normal Density score.

The Density score indicates consolidation ratios, such as virtual machines per host, virtual CPUs per physical CPU, virtual memory per physical memory, and so on. You can use the Density score to achieve higher consolidation ratios and cost savings.


Important Standards Badge - Green

The Compliance badge value is a score based on one or more compliance templates that you run in vRealize Operations Manager against the data collected from vRealize Operations Manager, datacenter, cluster, host system, virtual machine objects that are managed by vRealize Operations Manager and also by vRealize Configuration Manager if you have this adapter installed. The scores are calculated basedvRealize Configuration Manager on configured settings.

The badge score ranges between 0 and 100. For Time Remaining, Capacity, Efficiency, and Density badges a score of 100 indicates, they are in good condition. For Workload, Anomalies, Faults, Stress, and Reclaimable Capacity badges, 100 indicates bad condition. The color is based on badge score thresholds that are set by thevRealize Operations Manager administrator. Each badge has default thresholds. See Managing and Administering Policies for vRealize Operations Manager for more information about configuring the thresholds for badge scores.

The badges do not indicate the power state of vSphere-related resources. For example, if a host is disconnected in vSphere, the Workload badge will show Unknown instead of Offline status.

Badge Color



Green colored badge

Icon for normal workload status.

The object is in normal state, based on the set thresholds. For example, by default, the green infrastructure Workload badge indicates a score above 76.

Yellow colored badge

Icon for medium workload.

The object is experiencing some level of problems. For example, by default the infrastructure yellow Workload badge indicates a score between 80 and 89.

Orange colored badge

Icon for partially high level of Faults.

The object might have serious problems or is approaching its capacity. For example, by default, the infrastructure orange Faults badge indicates a score between 50 and 74.

Red colored badge

Icon for very serious risk status.

The object is either not functioning properly or will stop functioning soon. Most of the metrics are beyond their thresholds. For example, by default, the infrastructure red Risk badge indicates a score 100.

Gray colored badge

Capacity icon for objects with unknown capacity state.

No data is available for this object or the object is offline. For example, indicates that there is no data for the capacity remaining of the object.
