Define the formula for
the super metric.
Select each function
or operator to use and the metrics or attribute kinds to use in each function
or with each operator.
a  For Function, select
avg.

b  In the Operators
field, select the left parenthesis, then select the right parenthesis. Click
between the two parentheses to position your cursor in the formula.

c  In the Adapter Type
field of the Object Types pane, select
vCenter Adapter.

d  From the list of
object types that appear, select
Virtual Machine.

e  In the Attribute
Kinds pane, expand the CPU category, scroll down and doubleclick the
Usage
(%) metric .

The
formula appears as a mathematical function with the format
avg(${adapterkind=VMWARE,
resourcekind=VirtualMachine, attribute=cpuusage_average, depth=1}).
To view the formula in a textual format, click the
Show
Formula Description icon. The formula appears as
avg(VirtualMachine:
CPUUsage).
If the formula syntax is
wrong, an error message appears. For example,
vRealize
Operations Manager verifies that the number of opening and closing
parentheses are the same and that single values and arrays are not mixed. You
must correct the formula before you can save the super metric.
