A default or custom profile contains information for a specific configuration of an object. With the profiles you can see how many more of that object can fit in your environment depending on the available capacity and object configuration.

Default and custom profiles contain metrics configuration for an object. You can create as many profiles as you require for an object type. For example, you can create a profile for a virtual machine with Memory-Demand model 2 GB and another profile with Memory-Demand model 4 GB. vRealize Operations Manager uses custom profiles to calculate how many virtual machines with this Memory-Demand model can fit in your environment. You can see this calculation in the What Will Fit panel of the Capacity Remaining tab on a container object. You can also use the profiles to populate metrics when you create projects .

To manage your custom profiles, click Content in the left pane, and click Custom Profiles.
