vCenter Solutions Manager is a view in the vSphere client where you can monitor and interact with the solutions that register with a vCenter Server instance.

Solutions can provide solution-specific information about their health and status to Solutions Manager. Solutions Manager displays the health and status of the solutions in the vSphere client.

Solutions Manager shows three standard tabs for each running solution. The tabs list the virtual machines that a solution deploys and manages, show the health, name, company URL, and version of the solution, and show any vServices that the solution provides.

A solution can also add one or more tabs to Solutions Manager, for example to allow users to configure the solution, or to provide access in the vSphere client interface to the functions of the solution.
